Facebook users can now have face to face conversations with friends and loved ones after the social media company introduced the video calling in Messenger.
In a statement, Stan Chudnovsky, Head of Product for Messenger and Param Reddy, Engineering Manager said 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.
“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,” said Chudnovsky
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.
Messenger already offers people the ability to make voice calls to friends and loved ones around the world. It’s fast, reliable and high quality.
The app is expected to be faster and more reliable.
Video calling in Messenger is launching today for people 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. We’ll be rolling out to other regions and locales over the coming months.
