General News Facebook Messenger app for Windows 10 now lets users make voice and video calls
Advertisement
#1
Social media giant Facebook has rolled out a new update to its Messenger app that now lets Windows 10 users make voice and video calls. This is similar to what users on Android and iOS have been able to do so far. Until now, a user had to leave Messenger for Windows 10 and go to messenger.com or facebook.com to make voice or video calls.

The phone icon on the updated Messenger is on the top right corner of the screen in the Windows 10 app, Venturebeat reports. A chat glows green when the other person is currently active. When you start a call, the app asks the user if the ‘calls use Wi-Fi or your data plan’. This is a little odd because a Windows 10 computer does not have a data plan.


“Currently, the Windows Phone app does not have voice and video calling,” a Microsoft spokesperson was quoted as saying. Recently, Facebook updated WhatsApp for Windows Phone that let users make video calls. This came as a huge surprise as the feature is not yet available on Android or iOS platform. The feature on the Windows Phone app is however in beta phase and is only available for select users to test.

In July Facebook had said that 10 percent of all Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls went through the Messenger.
