Today Facebook is rolling out video calling to its Facebook Messenger app, for people on iOS and Android. Just like Skype or FaceTime, this new feature will allow people to communicate visually. The launch of this feature comes with several limitations; one it works only on LTE and Wi-Fi, and the second is that it will only be launched in Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the UK, the US and Uruguay. You can download the new Messenger for Android and iOS if you are the countries mentioned.
Messenger already offers people the ability to make voice calls to friends and loved ones around the world. Video calling will expand Messenger’s real-time communication features, enabling the more than 600 million people who use Messenger every month to reach others wherever they are, from anywhere. It’s fast, reliable and high quality.
Video calling in Messenger is available for calls made from a mobile phone to another mobile phone, even if one person is on iOS and the other person is on an Android device. Facebook has promised to roll out this feature to other countries the coming months.
