Mark Zuckerberg recently announced a bunch of new video tools across Facebook's family of apps to meet the increased demand and usage during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Here's what's coming to Facebook's various video tools:

+ Bigger group calls on WhatsApp: Video calling has been the most used type of video interaction in its apps around the world. So, to handle this demand Facebook is going to double the capacity of WhatsApp group video calls from four to eight participants.

+ New Effects: It is also adding new “mood lightening effects” tools to improve or alter your video chat presentation.

+ Virtual Date in Facebook Dating: Facebook's also looking to assist singles during the COVID-19 lockdown with a new tool that will enable Facebook Dating users to invite potential matches into video chats.

+ Messenger Rooms: You can now create a room right within Messenger or Facebook and invite anyone to join your video call, even if they don’t have a Facebook account. Rooms will soon hold up to 50 people and have no time limit.

You can start and share rooms on Facebook through News Feed, Groups and Events. They are also adding more ways to create rooms from Instagram Direct, WhatsApp and Portal.

At the moment, Rooms will not be available to Facebook Pages, so you can only use them via your personal account.

+ Live With: In December, Facebook removed the option to go live with a guest. However, it is now bringing its Live guests option back to Facebook Live. They are also working to make live videos useful for events by adding new features and experiences, including the ability to charge fees for viewers to join live video functions.

+ Instagram Live for desktop: You can now view Instagram Live streams via the web by logging in on the desktop site.

Well, that’s a lot of video updates to take in, and we won't know the full details of each new addition until they get released. In any case, you’ll soon have a lot more video options to consider.
