Facebook has recently released an update for their messenger application for iOS. Now you are able to make free calls (in case you live in UK). The good thing is that you don’t even have to update the application.
The update is now available so if you live in Canada or US, you can freely download it and start enjoying the new free call extra. Of course you should know that the call works in the same way as FaceTime works – it will use your 3G or wireless connection. Making a free call is really easy – we will show you how to do it below.
- Open the Facebook application
- Click on the profile of the person you want to speak with
- Tap on the ‘i’ on top-right of the screen
- Press on ‘Free Call’ and that’s it!
Users have been really happy ever since Facebook decided it would be better to delete their HTML based application and start building their own one from the scratch. The application is really great and there are no major bugs or issues with it, it also brings many new features with any new update such as; built-in emoticons, voice messaging, better user-interface, etc.
Of course, there are lots of different applications that work similarly to Facebook’s new free call feature but the thing is most of us use mainly the social network application. Thus, it is really great news that now you can make phone calls via it. This will definitely save us a lot of time.
Unfortunately, the feature is available only in Canada and US so far. And don’t forget that those free calls depend on your internet connection (3G or wireless).
