There is a constant rise in the frequency with which the world gets giddy and excited every time somebody manages to access an app’s code and finds something interesting enough to share with the whole world. Such is the case with Facebook Messenger and its potential Rooms feature.
Code remnants are usually footprints of features still in development. After all, the code is the backroom of an app. Pruning the code of all functions and features which will be implemented in one or two future versions takes time. Also, people usually should not be snooping around in there.
However, people still do snoop around and quite a lot. And it is because of this innate curiosity that the world can find out about features, such as the Rooms feature which could be very soon coming to Facebook Messenger.
From what can be gathered, the Rooms feature will work a lot like the IRC channels of yore, where several people who wanted to address a certain topic could do so, live. Facebook Messenger currently only supports individual-made groups and has no core way of letting total strangers end up in the same chat channel.
The Rooms feature gives way to a lot of excitement and eagerness to see it implemented. A lot of Messenger’s competitors already have public group chats built into them and the option seems to be widely popular in a lot of different circles.
Will Messenger Rooms Feature Chatbots?
However, it is worthy of mention that the code did not supply any information in regards to chatbots. Facebook Messenger chatbots received an overwhelming amount of hype ever since the public message to developers was made.
The chatbots even received a recent update which allows them to sell items without linking to external payment websites. The Messenger chatbots may prove to be one of the most lucrative businesses and many see their integration into public groups as a must have.
Although the team behind Facebook Messenger most likely did not plan for the information about the new Rooms feature to be leaked, the amount of discussion it has generated can prove to be a huge font of pre-open-alpha feedback.
