On Wednesday, Facebook rolled out a new feature for users in USA. Using this feature you can now call your friends for free. Is there a catch? Not a catch, but you need to have an iPhone and the Facebook messenger app to do this. Of course, you need a data connection or Wi-Fi to make calls using the Facebook Messenger app.
The call feature is automatically added to the current Facebook messenger app and there is no need to update or download a new app. All you need to do is tap the “i” icon on the chat window and then select ‘Free Call’. You will be able to make calls to your friends only if you both have the Facebook messenger app installed on your iPhones.
There are a lot of options available nowadays to make free calls using data connections but this will be one of the most used because almost everyone uses the Facebook messenger nowadays. As of now, this feature is available in USA and Canada only. Let’s hope its rolled out to other countries soon.
