Now Make Free Calls Using Facebook!


Facebook has added free voice calling to their list of services. Though not individually, the social networking giant has unveiled free voice calling to users of the Messenger app in India. If you use Facebook Messenger app on your smartphone, you can download the latest upgrade and make free voice calls to friends in your list!

The service was rolled out initially in USA and Canada last year and has been a pending update. While the service lets you make free voice calls to all friends in your messenger list, you will still have to incur data charges. Voice calls can be made only if the other person on your list has also installed the app.

The free calling works with both 2G and 3G connections but needless to say, the results will be better on 3G and WiFi. Currently, the voice calling feature is available only on iOS and Android apps. We guess BlackBerry and Windows users will have to wait a bit more to get the feature. While iOS users will get a push notification when someone tries making a free call, Android users will get the call as a normal voice call. To make a free voice call, simply go to the menu and choose the new option of ‘Free Call’. You can then select the friend in your list you want to make the call to. The process is a little more complex in your iPhone. Open the conversation thread with the person you wish to call, click on the menu option at the top right corner and choose the ‘Call’ option. 

After Facebook’s acquisition of Whatsapp, the social networking giant has been in news for their new additions and modifications to be made to the chatting app. While Facebook and Whatsapp have both maintained that privacy won’t change, there have still been concerns about the two chat giants merging. 

Whatsapp announced at MWC this year their plans to launch Voice Calling by July. And looks like Facebook is trying to prove a point by launching Voice Calling earlier. Yes, we know who’s boss FB.
