The NFL’s online chatrooms have been going strong for years, and they have grown exponentially.
Now, the league is expanding them further, including opening up the game to users who have never been in person.
This new feature will allow players to join and interact with one another in real time.
This feature will also allow teams to make more frequent announcements.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement Thursday that the chatroom will be used by the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) and its member clubs to inform, support and educate players about social issues.
In addition to providing a platform for players to speak out against violence, bullying and other issues, the chat room will be a place where players can find the support they need.
“This new feature, which we are very excited about, will allow NFL players to have a voice in the discussion around the issues that affect our game,” Goodell said.
“The NFLPA is committed to working with our players to help create a safe environment for them and their families.”
The NFLPA will provide a number of tools to help players connect with other players and support them through the league’s new social media platforms.
These include social media channels, video games and online forums.
