Americans aren’t quite used to getting the shaft on apps and games to start, but we see just how much it hurts when it happens. Our international friends have had the chance to point and laugh at us for not having access to Facebook VoIP calling for quite some time, but we can finally can those chilling cackling noises as the service has finally made its way to those in the United States of America.
Free to and from any users of Facebook, calls are initiated by tapping your friends’ icon and hitting the call button. Simple, right? There’s nothing much to it in the foreground, but it’s a pretty big development that will add even more killer features for those who can’t get enough of the social network (as if the “in-your-face” nature of Facebook Home wasn’t enough).
Whatever your reasons may be for wanting VoIP calling to your Facebook friends on Android you’ll be able to get it through Facebook Home or the Facebook Messenger app, so be sure to grab those from their respective links in the Google Play Store and start bugging those friends who — for some weird reason — just don’t want you to have their phone number.
