TheVerge is reporting that Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system will include a new “Rooms” feature.

This will allow friends and family to chat in a virtual room and share data.

The Rooms feature is said to be a new option that will create an interactive group full of friends or family.

From the story:

A text message will invite users to join, and once accepted Rooms participants can share calendar items, photos, and notes privately.

Rooms will also include a group chat feature that allows participants to chat with each other. Rooms can be created in a similar way to Groups in Windows Phone 8, and Microsoft will provide a default “Best Friends” group and “Family Room” built into the People Hub.
