What are the Pulsing Rings in Facebook Messenger?
Ever noticed those cool, pulsing rings around the video call icon in Messenger? Let’s talk about what they are and why they’re there.
Imagine you want to chat with your friend. You open Messenger, click on your friend’s chat, and see they’re online. Just when you do that, your friend also opens your chat. That’s when you’ll see these pulsing rings around the video call icon at the top right corner.
These rings show up when both you and your friend are looking at the same chat screen. It’s like a secret signal saying, “Hey, we’re both here!”
