If a Messenger person is not active, can they be in a video call with someone else?
To make a call or video call to someone else it is necessary that both people are active on the platform . However, when you make a call and that person does not answer, even though you will not be able to see the notification of the call immediately, when you enter the application again you will be able to see it.
Also, if that person is not active or not receiving calls, you can leave a message to let them know that you have called . On the other hand, you can just make a call so that when you enter the platform again you will see the notification of a missed call.
