Mark Zuckerberg has great news for the users of its social network. Its application launched the Facebook Messenger for free calls for all its users. The good thing about this update is that it is available for both iOS and Android operative systems worldwide. 

With this new feature, the Facebook Messenger users can communicate by selecting the button shaped phone that should appear from this week.
If the phone icon do not appears, it is a matter of waiting a few hours to leave a new Facebook update.

At the moment you can only make voice calls and videoconferences not through the smartphones. Furthermore the calls are available up to 50 users in a conversation. And one recommendation is to use the nearest WiFi network and not the data plan that will not balance them.

The first thing to do is to make sure you have the latest version of the Facebook Messenger in your team. If you do not have it you have to download it from the App Store or the Google Play Store.

Facebook Group Calls

Once inside the Facebook Messenger you must go to your groups and choose one to initiate the call. You can also create a new one if there is one that is convenient to us.
Within the chosen group there is an icon of a phone and we press it. After this, we choose with whom we wish to initiate the call and click "Call".

This measure is a strategy to compete directly with other systems calls as Skype or Google Hangouts. Onsite implemented years ago the Facebook calling service but not in the group chats.

The advantage of the Facebook Messenger is that the calls do not sound distorted or the voices seem like robots. It also has a database of 900 million users that is far superior to those of Skype and Hangouts.

Other developments

It is not surprising that the next step is the group video calls. Soon we will see the updates that will bring us the Facebook Messenger and what improvements will have their rivals to retain their users, as the option to make the purchases from the chat rooms; while the second would provide greater security in sending the messages.
Among the plans of the company has said Marc Zuckerberg are the effort
ts to become a center for the retail purchases. The new feature would allow people to use the application to make payments in certain stores. 

And although Mark Zuckerberg had previously stated that for the moment he don’t want to become a payment processor, everything indicates that Facebook has changed its mind. In January of this year the CEO of Facebook said the strategy for the payments was based on removing the obstacles when making the transactions.

On the other hand, the code also revealed that the Facebook Messenger could activate the option "secret talks" which would serve to encrypt the messages as it does WhatsApp or Line, and likewise to hide the certain messages on the device.
