The VoIP world is at it, trying to push for products that rival every competitor out there on the technology scene, and Facebook is no different.

You can now talk to people face-to-face on Facebook Messenger. This new feature allows you to call a person you’re chatting with by tapping a small video camera icon on the top right of your chat bubble.

Audio calls were already introduced into Messenger by Facebook but this is a step ahead in its capabilities, putting it at the same level as other video calling apps such as Viber and Skype.

The new Facebook Messenger with video calls can connect you to other users whether they are using an iOS or Android device.

Facebook Messenger in Zambia is known for a lot of spam invasion so we don’t know if this could be the attention seeker that will finally get Zambians to use more of it for regular communication. It’s a great initiative because almost everyone is on Facebook nowadays, active or not, and when they are online you can now literally see them!

The new updated Facebook Messenger has been rolled out first to Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the UK, the US and Uruguay for both iOS and Android, according to the Facebook newsroom, and will be rolled out to the rest of the world in the next few days.

Are you excited about it, or will you keep on with what you use for video calls already?
