This feature called Messenger Rooms has reached Instagram users but it is not currently available to everyone in the WhatsApp. This feature has been introduced in Android and iOS beta versions and now the company has also explained how Android users will be able to use it.

WhatsApp has updated its FAQ page to explain how ROM links can be created and shared or how to be part of someone else’s ROM.
