FACEBOOK TESTING VOICE CALLING
Facebook today began testing a new feature in its Messenger app that lets Canadian users call each other for free anywhere they have a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection. The test for now only applies to Messenger for iOS, but could roll out to Android users, as well as people worldwide, if the test goes well.
Those outside Canada will today receive an update on both Facebook Messenger for Android and iOS that lets users send each other short “push to talk” voice messages (pictured).
While voice messages instantly put Messenger on par with popular apps Voxer and HeyTell, VoIP calling is a much bigger deal, and would have enormous ramifications if it were to roll out to all Facebook users.
