Facebook rolls out video calling in Messenger
In an attempt to make messenger even more popular, Facebook is taking serious steps in this direction. With the launch of live video chat feature on messenger, Facebook took another step to popularise its product.
The feature will benefit the 600 million active customers that use Facebook messenger, plus many more being added every second. The service is platform independent, meaning a person using Android can call another person using iOS and vice versa.
Calling someone is just one touch away, as with the touch of the video call button, you’ll enter the video calling mode.
The service is free and only the data is used up. Calls made do not lag, the quality is good and well, it is somewhat expected because of two reasons. Firstly, it is a Facebook product and secondly, the main rival Skype has got a great reputation for providing video calling. So, to thrive in this market, the service had to be great.
Here’s the product video.
As of now, the service is only available in limited places for people on Android and iOS in Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the UK, the US and Uruguay. It’ll be released in other regions too in the coming months.
