This feature was seen within the WhatsApp version 2.20.163 beta for Android, which is now available for selected beta testers. It's also speculated that this feature will soon be extended to more beta users with updates. Reportedly, this feature is currently offered to selected users within the US only. let me tell you that Facebook started rolling out the Messenger Rooms feature globally on Friday and now a day after this. In messenger rooms, users can group chat with more than 50 people. Facebook had also announced that the corporate will soon bring Messenger Rooms to Instagram and Facebook, but there's no information when it will come currently.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, Facebook-owned WhatsApp Messenger has added the Facebook Messenger Rooms shortcut to WhatsApp version 2.20.163 beta for Android. Earlier Messenger room shortcut has also been seen on WhatsApp Android Beta version 2.20.139. However the feature in that version wasn't available to beta users and more importantly, the feature wasn't usable. But now the company has released it to selected Beta Testers in the US, indicating that the feature is now functional, depending on the availability of Messenger Rooms in your area.

To check the Facebook Messenger Rooms shortcut on WhatsApp version 2.20.163 beta, users will need to open the chat share sheet of the app and see if the "Room" shortcut is coming there. Reportedly, the room shortcut comes in place of the old camera button, which remains available in the chat bar.

Once users have chosen the room option, a window is allegedly displayed, which provides the feature information. A text appears in a new window on WhatsApp 2.20.163, stating that the rooms are protected by encryption and privacy control of Messenger. However, it added that "video group calls aren't encrypted end-to-end."

The report further claims that beta users of this version can also see the rooms shortcut within the Call tab. the call tab on WhatsApp Android Beta is at the top right corner of the app. Once the beta user selects the room icon within the Call tab, a brand new window appears asking if you would like to visit Messenger Rooms.
