The Virtual Dating feature will soon be available for Facebook users. Zuckerberg recently announced many new features that are coming on Facebook. One of those features is going to challenge Zoom, by allowing video conference of up to 50 participants. Facebook named this feature “Messenger Rooms“. Facebook users can create meetings and invite their friends and classmates to join, even if they are not Facebook users. Soon, they will be adding this feature to Instagram direct too.

Due to this pandemic, people are advised to stay at home and maintain social distancing. Facebook is introducing new features to make sure you stay in touch with your loved one’s and friends.
Virtual Dating and Other Features
Currently, the government has imposed lockdown in every country, for our safety and health. Food outlets, Shopping-malls, etc are closed everywhere. So, there is no chance for you to go on a real-world date. Zuckerberg came up with a feature “Virtual Dating” in which the online daters will be able to swipe and match to a person. You can either choose to accept or ignore, it is totally up to you. It will be totally random, so if you choose to accept, you guys will be connected on Facebook Messenger via a video call. Facebook came up with a similar feature in 2019 which we also discussed last year. It was a “Facebook Dating Application”, in which anyone with a Facebook account and is older than 18 years old had to set up a dating profile. These matches were mostly based on the preferences expressed while creating the profile and Facebook activity.
