Facebook Messenger for iPhone to feature free calling

On Thursday, the Facebook Messenger app for iPhone has just received an update to version 2.1 and will start rolling out a new “push to talk” feature.

According to Facebook, the “push to talk” free calling function is currently enabled only for Facebook Messenger users in Canada.

Here is how the Facebook Messenger app update appears on my iPad Mini. Of course the app remains strictly for the iPhone for now.

Free calling in Facebook Messenger means that the app would rival apps such as Viber and even Skype. However, note that so far there is no word from Facebook headquarters for video calling in their Messenger app.

  1. Thanks for helping me on this issue I was searching for some App for my android for making voice call and messaging free. I was using Facebook messager but was not aware of its update. After searching on many sites finally I got the clear description here. I visited on other site where they had explained about this topic, but was not too clear and I had to move for other site. And now see, I got everything clear from you by picking every fact & simple steps for updation. Will come back to you soon for more updations, Keep updating.
