Facebook is surely one of the best social networking site. The best thing is that it’s free, very interesting and easy to use. Day after another Facebook is introducing apps and other stuff, which helps its users in various ways. Facebook Messenger app has now introduced a more easy way of sending messages to your friends and loved ones, checkout all the details about this new thing right here.
A good news for those, who are tired of typing text messages via Facebook messenger. Now you can record your message and send it to your friends. Facebook has recently updated its Facebook messenger app, by adding a voice messaging feature. Facebook messenger, which is available for Apple’s App store and Android’s Play store, is now providing its users to record short voice messages, which can be about of one minute long.
This facility will be available for Facebook messenger version 2.1 and it is free of cost to download. But for those who had already updated the new version, they will automatically receive this service. With the help of new Facebook messenger, you can also make free calls to your Facebook contacts, obviously this works on WiFi because these are VoIP calls.
This means that Facebook is now all set to change the messaging system completely and surely better than the WhatsApp. The only thing which is left for making Facebook messenger the best app for messaging is adding a video chat option to it. Facebook has also mentioned that the calling service will be rolling out “in the next few weeks”.
But there is a slight catch and that is, this feature is only be available to iOS users in Canada. This is because Facebook want to make this feature perfect before making it available to all users worldwide
To use the service, Canadian users will be able to log into their Messenger app, open a conversation with the person they want to call, hit the ‘i’ button in the top-right corner and selecting ‘Free Call.’ To send and receive calls, users will need to have the latest version of the app that is available today.
This version now only available for Canadian users, you have to wait to experience these changes. The changes made to Facebook messenger version 2.1 are as follows:
- send a quick voice message when you have more to say
- call friends for free right from Messenger
- other improvements and bug fixes
Now the competition will be though for Google because Google Talk VoIP service has been widely appreciated and it is rapidly grooming because it was ideal for those who wanted to get rid of many numbers and just wanted to keep a single Google number. Conclusively, this time Facebook has nailed the ground but Google might come up with something bigger and better.
