Facebook to launch VoIP Calling to its Messenger iOS app today for United Kingdom residents

UK residents get VoIP calling over Facebook's Messenger App for iOS today

US and Canadian users of Facebook's Messenger App for iOS have had the privilege of VoIP calling since January, but UK users have been left in the dark, while testing was conducted. Today all of that changes as Facebook has released VoIP Calling for Messenger to its UK users.


"From today, VOIP calling for Facebook Messenger on iOS will go live in the UK. This means that you can call friends in Facebook Messenger for free by tapping the 'I' button in an individual conversation and then tapping 'Free Call'."

Facebook is said to have begun the world wide VoIP rollout to compete with services such as What's App, IMO, and iCall which see billions of messages and calls sent a day. We want to know many of our UK readers will use the new VoIP service on the Facebook Messenger App. Let us know in the comments.
