Facebook has started to introduce video calls in Messenger, allowing you to have face-to-face video chats with your friends via its mobile app. Probably a direct hit towards Skype.

Making a video call on Messenger is very simple, you just need to tap on the “camera” icon that you will find in the top right corner of your chat screen.
Of course, video calls can take place between users of iOS and Android.

The new feature will directly compete with the likes of Skype which was, until now, almost the only way for users to have a video conversation without being both on the same operating system (iOS users can use FaceTime for video calls, but only between iOS users).
Video calls are already available in Facebook Messenger on iOS and Android in the UK, US, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal and Uruguay, with other regions to follow in the coming months.
