Facebook has finally rolled out its very own video calling feature in its instant messaging service Messenger app in order to compete with other platforms’ social messaging app such as WeChat, Skype, Facetime , Tango, Hangout and more!
Facebook is now growing fast as it tries to develop all sorts of convenient means for its users. Just last month, the company introduced a feature that allows users to send money to their friends through Messenger and a week after that, Facebook opened up Messenger as a platform for app developers.
By developing the video-calling feature, Facebook aimed to expand Messenger into an all-encompassing communication portal.
Facebook wrote in its newsroom page:-
“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 on Messenger can be made from iOS to Android device and vice versa and it is currently available in 18 countries including UK, US, France, Canada, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Mexico and Nigeria. The feature will soon roll out in other regions as well.
