Facebook Messenger now with video calls

by Tony Hill on April 30, 2015

At the end of last July, Facebook realized a decision made some time ago to completely disable the ability to send instant messages to other users from its main mobile app. Users can now do that only by using Facebook's mobile application Messenger, which has long been offered as a substitute for other similar services such as WhatsApp and Viber. Facebook is still informing its users about this change by notices in the application and by e-mail.

However, as Facebook Messenger has not yet fully convinced, Facebook decided to offer its customers another service that will be hard to refuse. Application is in fact now richer for video calls, which means that it can easily be compared against popular applications in this field, such as Skype, Google Hangouts and Apple's FaceTime. New services of Facebook Messenger can be used with no problems through wireless Wi-Fi and mobile networks and also works with slower Internet connections. Video calls within the Facebook Messenger are currently available to all of its 600 million users without any restrictions.
