Facebook adds free calling feature for US iPhones

Facebook has added a feature in its mobile phone app that allows free calling for US iPhone users.

Facebook users can now make calls to each other via the Facebook messenger app. This new feature will please a lot of you as it means that you will avoid any call charges.

Facebook have announced that they are working on adding the feature to its messenger app for Android and BlackBerry users.

To make a free call to another Facebook user; you simply tap the ‘i’ icon at the top right hand corner of the screen and select ‘Free Call’. The calls can only be made to another user who has messenger installed on their iPhone.

This latest development is completely independent to the video calling software Skype; which has already been integrated into Facebook’s website.

On Tuesday, Facebook unveiled a smart search engine – called Graph Search – that allows users to make “natural” searches of content shared by their friends.
