Facebook Messenger VoIP App Released

Facebook, the world's largest social network with more than 500 million users, is now becoming even more connected by offering the chance to make Voice over Internet Protocol calls.

The Facebook Messenger by Crisp App means that VoIP calls are only a click away for those who are already chatting via IM.

Once you have downloaded the iPhone app for the cost of $3 the calls are free of charge which will be very appealing and a serious rival to the Google call phones service.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg has said that he wants the network to become more horizontal, mainly through the use of imbedded apps such as this which will increase the strands and layers of connectivity. It could be part of the future of social UC solutions.

The company is rumoured to be creating its own Facebook Voip
as one user recently stumbled across a call feature which was then quickly removed. It is as yet unsure whether this was a glitch or a trial for new Facebook low cost calling.

To use the Facebook messenger app all you have to do is log into your account and you will be presented with your contact list.

If you plan to go to the next level of communication you can upgrade your text chat to free Facebook VoIP calling. Your contacts will be alerted about your attempts to connect via a link to the flash based app.

All the normal Facebook features are still available on the chat interface such as using emoticons and posting pictures, while the VoIP app gives multi-tasking support.

Facebook Messenger requires iOS 3.1.2 or later.
