Remember how Facebook was trying out the free calls and voice messaging service via its Messenger app in some countries? The test seems to have gone well enough for the social networking giant to allow users in the US with iPhones to make free calls through the Facebook Messenger.
The feature that has already begun rolling out for all iPhone users in the US requires no update from the App Store. To make a call using Messenger for iPhone, all a user needs to do is hit the ‘i’ button from within a conversation with the person and tap ‘Free Call’.
Facebook members who use the Messenger on their iPhones in the US can now place free calls over Wi-Fi or the phone’s data connection on the go. It could be a pretty useful feature if a user needs to save on talk-time. This service essentially eliminates the need to possess the phone number of a Facebook friend too.
