Facebook Messenger for Android Now Provides VoIP Features
It would seem that Facebook has really decided to greatly improve the general perception of the service on the Android platform. After promising things are going to change for the better, the social network provider held their Android related event to announce Facebook Home, along with the HTC First – social oriented smartphone.
In the long line of enhancements that Facebook has decided to bring to its apps, Messenger was not left behind and benefited from features and improvements. Now the app is compatible and can be integrated into Facebook Home. There is also the new Chat Heads feature that gives user the ability to access their conversations faster and more convenient due to the revamped interface.
Implementing the features is one thing but making them available across the Globe seems a hard task to accomplish. That’s the main reason for some of the features still pending in different territories and the same can be said for the upcoming VoIP feature, for voice enabled conversations. VoIP will be integrated in Facebook Messenger, with a gradual rollout to U.S. users. It will appear in the form of a “Free Call” button to the top right corner of the screen. You can also access it by hitting the three dot menu next to a contact’s name and selecting the option when it becomes available.
