It’s a great day for app updates on Google Play, and Facebook Messenger is getting a doozy. The messaging app is now giving its users the ability to make free calls over WiFi — a feature that’s yet to even makes its way rival services like Google Hangouts on Android (iOS Hangouts actually has this feature).
Also new for version 4.0 is the new Group chatting tab, which allows users to pin groups and return to them easily in their own dedicated section. Groups can be named (similar to Skype), so you can easily keep tabs of friends, family, coworkers, or whoever else you’d like to group. Photos and messages shared in groups can also be sent to someone not in the chat with the new forwarding feature. For even quicker access to conversations, they can now be added as widgets to the homescreen.
Download this awesome new update to Facebook Messenger on the Google Play Store, just keep in mind that when away from a WiFi network, standard calling rates apply. Cheers.
