Facebook to put your horrible face in calls

28 April 2015

Facebook Facebook - everyone's favourite, honest - have added a video-calling feature the Messenger app, so your massive, nasty face can appear when you're bothering someone who was sat at home, minding their own business.

Of course, this isn't a new thing as you've been able to do this on Skype for ages, and of course, Apple FaceTime is a thing. Anyway, this new-to-Messenger feature, is available immediately on Apple iOS and Android.

"Today, we're introducing video calling in Messenger. Now you can have face-to-face conversations with your friends and the people you care about, via Messenger," said Stan Chudnovsky, Head of Product for Messenger and Param Reddy, Engineering Manager.

You'll be able to use it if one person is on Apple and you're on Android, or whatever.

This follows a spate of announcements from Facebook, including the social network's tinkering with our timelines for the millionth time. You'll also be able to send money through FB too, if you like. They also made Messenger available on desktop too.

All these developments won't stop people from hating the company though. There's still a legal case knocking about, with 25,000 people suing Facebook over privacy concerns. Still, for those that use the site and maybe have family living overseas, this video-chat function might be just the thing.
