Facebook has unveiled video calling in its Messenger mobile application, which will enable users to have face-to-face conversation with loved ones.
The new feature will allow users go beyond voice calls, already offered on the Messenger App, expand the app’s real-time communication features and enable the more than 600 million people who use Messenger every month to reach others wherever they are, from anywhere.
The fast, reliable and high quality video calling is available for calls made from a mobile phone to another mobile phone, be it an iOS or Android device.
According to Facebook newsroom, “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”.
Video Calling in Messenger App has been launched on iOS and Android in Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the UK, the US and Uruguay. Facebook revealed that the new Messenger feature will be made available to other regions and locales over the coming months.
