The current coronavirus pandemic has left most people confined to their homes. Consequently, individuals and organizations are forced to hold meetings online. Due to this, the video conferencing industry is experiencing an increase in demand. Video conferencing has become a staple in most homes as the primary way to keep up with school, work, and family.
While it has been a popular video conferencing tool, Zoom has experienced some troubles. Recently, it has been a target for cyber-attacks with a reported case of meeting disruption with racist and racy content.
This has led to people seeking other options for video conferencing and why Facebook has launched a viable new option — Messenger Rooms.
