Facebook Updates Messenger With Free Video Calling Function


Facebook yesterday (27th April 2015) introduced free video calling into its messenger app. The video calling in Messenger is available for both iOS and Android Users. This means that, you can call another Facebook user anywhere in the world using the free video calling button.

According to Facebook

"Today, we’re introducing video calling in Messenger. Now you can have face-to-face conversations with your friends and the people you care about, via Messenger. You can quickly start a video call from any conversation with just one tap.

If you’re messaging with someone and realize that words just aren’t enough, you can simply choose the video icon in the top right corner of the screen and start a video call right from within an existing Messenger conversation".

The video support is available in Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria,  the UK, the US and Uruguay while the update will be rolled out to other regions and locales soon.
With this new feature, Skype and Viber are in real competition with Facebook.What do you think?
Do not forget to use the share buttons.
