By default, the app comes with a pre-installed chat option but there’s still a Messenger that was released with it – that Messenger is really better than the normal Facebook app. And now, as we’re hearing it, it seems that the messenger app will even become more useful than the normal facebook app as the news had it that Facebook is planning of integrating video calling feature into the Messenger app.
You should know that this is still in rumor, but there’s probability that it will be released soon. iPhoneiTalia claims that Facebook, has started the testing process of this video calling option before they can fully integrate it into the messenger app.
In the meantime, some months ago, Facebook joined with Skype, the popular VoIP and online chatting provider in order to provide the computer users of facebook to be able to chat with their friends and families via the platform. It works with most web browsers but this time, facebook is going to another length in order to provide users with smartphones to use video calling with their phones.
Also, the rumor claims that the new to be made available video calling feature will come useful for any iDevice with camera that is facing the front.
As at the time of this writing, no feature has been recorded whether the app will be released for Android or the Windows phone platforms.
