Facebook allows users to start a free video call through Messenger

Facebook adds free video calling to Messenger

Good news! You can now have a face-to-face conversation with your friends through Facebook Messenger app.

As part of the development, the release will allow Facebook Messenger app users to quickly start a video call to their Facebook friends with just one tap by simply clicking the video icon in the top right corner of the screen.

The recently added feature will give way for Facebook to compete with products such as Apple’s FaceTime and Microsoft’s Skype.

Facebook previously allowed video calling through its site on the desktop, but not within its Messenger app.

The video calling feature is available in the iOS and Android Messenger apps. iOS users will be able to video chat with Android users, and vice versa.

Thanks for the love, Facebook. What do you think? Watch the video below for the demo:
