    On WP7.x it's a matter of just tapping the plus symbol in the People Hub. I'm trying to recall how to do it on WP8 providing it isn't the same, which I thought it was.

    I'm pretty sure Groups is the same as above. I think Rooms you have to swipe over one more screen. I know there's a sample room, Family, already there. Okay. This reply is total fail. Somebody who actually has a device help this cat out.

    Sorry.

    It's in the People hub and you select "Together" and hit the "+" at the bottom.


    From what I can see this may not be working fully yet. If you try to form a room with someone NOT on WP8 all they will see is a shared calendar - no group message or picture sharing.

    Also - max in a room is 10 and you can have max 5 rooms.

    No max to groups but you can only have 25 per group.

    I formed a room with my brother just fine. Sent out the invite, he accepted and his pic showed up in the Room. Tested out chat and photo sharing. By the way... this pretty similar to T-Mobile's family room app, if anyone hadn't noticed that.

    It works for me. My wife has an iPhone and she can see the photos and notes I shared. Of course, she has to use the Skydrive and Onenote apps on her iPhone for this, but the group I created shows up as a shared group in each of those apps and she can add to it just fine. Group messaging won't work, but this was announced as a WP8 exclusive feature.

    Singh. WP is supposed to have integration across social media like that. If you add the account, FB, Twitter, it will sync their page/wall info. So it just a touch away. This also brings the native ability to upload pics, vids, etc across them as well. And FB chat. If you don't want to see your contacts and/or their posts in people hub, the toggle and filter options are in settings under people, or even the settings straight in the hub. The group was a most likely a default thing part of WP.

    Great just found this thread right before I wanted to post my own.

    I have a problem with Rooms just recently. The notification (toast) for the messages just stopped. It was working at first but now I have to tap into Rooms all the time before the messages update.

    Does anybody know why, or which settings I should check out to fix this? The only thing I changed since I got the phone was turn off "Locations", but I doubt that should mess with the messages.

    You know, I notice my stuff was a bit off too. Had to go to FB and change my notification settings. The full desktop site that is. Waiting on the update now.
