Windows Phone 8 is almost ready to launch and new details of a feature called "Rooms" have appeared online.
The crew over at TheClove reported on the feature which will enable Windows Phone 8 users to connect and share files with their friends and family. Essentially, it's like a private chat room with file sharing which users setup and then invite people to.
After accepting an invite, which comes in a text-message, users can share photos, videos, calendars and more. Additionally, you can chat with anyone in your room and make notes together. Essentially, it offers a similar service to Blackberry Messenger and should prove popular with Windows Phone 8 smartphone owners.
Microsoft are yet to confirm the existence of "Rooms", but some leaked screenshots have been posted by Liveside (see above). On its own the "Rooms" feature doesn't offer anything because a lot of the features are also offered by Facebook, so we'll just have to wait and see how well it is received.
As soon as 3G hear any fresh information about "Rooms" or the Windows Phone 8 platform in general you'll be the first to know.
