Facebook has now made its free calling service via Facebook Messenger available to users in the U.K.
Initially available only in Canada, the Skype-like VOiP service was rolled out in the U.S. last January. It was also integrated as an add-on feature of the main Facebook app in February.
And now, the service, which allows Facebook Messenger users to call one another for free over Wi-Fi or a cellular data connection, is finally accessible in the U.K. as well.
To initiate a call through Facebook Messenger, just open a conversation with the person you want to call, tap the “i” button, and tap “Free Call.”
If you’re a Facebook Messenger in the U.K., you don’t have to update the app or do something special with it for the new feature to be enabled. Just look for the “Free Call” button. Previously grayed out, that button should now be fully tappable and operational.
Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch, Facebook Messenger is available in the App Store for free.
Facebook has also announced its plans to provide free or discounted data access through Facebook Messenger. The promotion will be available “in the coming months” from more than 18 mobile carriers in 14 countries around the world.
