In July we reported about the upcoming group chat feature called ‘Room’ in Windows Phone 8 revealed via Windows Phone 8 SDK. Today, The Verge has confirmed that the feature will be part of Windows Phone 8 as we reported.
Here is the description of ‘Room’ from Microsoft,
Gather your friends and family together. Invite them to a private Room where you can share a calendar, photos, group chat and notes. Or add them to a Group to see social updates from just those folks and text them all at once. Tap the plus sign to get started.
We are not sure whether this new ‘Room’ functionality will replace the existing Groups feature in Windows Phone devices. We should wait till tomorrow to know all the details about this new feature.
