FBs Free Video Calling Going Worldwide

Facebook Video
Demand for Facebook has been increasing and consumers are always demanding for more. The company hopes that with the free video calling feature for Facebook's Messenger platform now worldwide, interest will continue to rise.

But Facebook's Dave Marcus said only a few countries still may not have the feature for now as the social networking giant works out some quality improvement issues.

"(W)e're happy to share we've now rolled out the capability globally, with the exception of a few countries we're still working on improving quality for," Marcus said.

He said the feature is now in the latest apps of Facebook for iOS and Android.

Last April, Facebook introduced the new feature that allows face-to-face conversations. It is initially available on mobile devices running Apple's iOS and Google's Android.

"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," Stan Chudnovsky, head of product for Messenger, and Param Reddy, engineering manager, said in a blog post.

Messenger has yet to win over some Facebook users who do not like the idea of a standalone messaging app for the social networking site.
