You can create a video chat room from your Portal to chat with contacts. You can also choose to let anyone join with a link, including people who aren't a contact and those who don't have Facebook or Messenger.
When you create your room, you choose who can discover and join your room:
To learn more about Messenger rooms visit the Messenger Help Center.
When you join the room, people with the link or invite will be able to see your name and profile photo and that you’re in it. This may include people you’re not friends with on Facebook. You can lock or end your room to keep new people from joining.
After you’ve created your room, you can invite more friends by inviting contacts or sharing a link to your room.
If your room is set to Friends you invite and people with the link, anyone with a link can join your room and invite others to join.
