The most popular social network Facebook has unveiled free VOIP video calling for Smart phone’s and Wi-Fi connected devices for iOS and Android platforms.

This new feature of Facebook has a massive following of Messenger users upto 600 million and 1.44 billion Facebook users. The services will be made available in US, Canada, England and 15 more countries.

One of the co-founders of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg stated that Messenger accounts for 10 per cent of the global VOIP mobile calls.

The high end audio and video VOIP calls can displace the traditional phone calls, he added.

The Messenger has just been upgraded and you can find a video call icon available on top right corner of the chat, showing you that you can call them.

On the tap on the video call icon, your phone selfie cam gets on when your friend accepts the call and you can even toggle the cam to show your friend what you were doing at the moment.

Messenger is given an ability to adjust the call quality according to the connection and switch it to audio mode if the connection is too weak.

The awesome feature that was given to the messenger is to share the bandwidth. For example, if you are talking to a person who is so far on mountains you can smartly turn off the video feature and feed the band width to him so that you can see the mountains lively instead of the person looking at your background.

The video calling feature will be activated in few months across Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the US and Uruguay.
