Facebook makes Messenger’s free video calling open to all (almost)

Despite already purchasing WhatsApp, Facebook isn't letting Messenger fall by wayside

Facebook Messenger’s free video calling service was introduced last month and now, Facebook has officially made it available for almost every country.

David Marcus, vice president of messaging product announced on Facebook stating “We’re happy to share we’ve now rolled out the capability globally, with the exception of a few countries we’re still working on improving quality for. So make sure you get the latest and greatest version for iOS and Android, give it a try, and as always… tell us how we can make it even better for you!”,”

Additionally, the service also works on the service’s own website, Messenger.com. We are unclear of which countries does not yet support the free video call service but we do know that UAE is one of them due to Marcus’s reply to a Facebook user.

The expansion is a follow up to the introduction of free voice calling to its other messaging app, WhatsApp and as of the end of March, Messenger had more than 600 million monthly active users.
