Users of the Windows 10 Facebook app can now do more than just send text messages to on the app. The latest update now also allows them to make voice and video calls as well.
The update which Windows 10 users have been waiting for, is finally here. The app works like the other versions of Messenger on iOS and Android, giving you a phone icon to tap on within a chat to call the other users. If the other person is available, you get to call them.
Windows users had to navigate to the Facebook or Messenger websites on a browser to use this functionality up until now, but now they can do so with one tap. When someone calls you, you get a native desktop notification, however you cannon set a reminder or send a message while receiving a call. As usual though, you will have the option to leave a voice message if your call is unanswered.
The Windows 10 version of the Facebook app gives users something extra as well. Up until now, only users of the specific app were able to natively record and broadcast Live from their desktop. iOS and Android users can still use this tool to go Live from their desktops, but the functionality has been limited to this version of the app.
Not all users will have the update just yet, as it’s rolling out gradually. When available, they can find the “Go Live” option within the status update box.
