Facebook has quietly made a VoIP-based calling service available to iPhone users in the U.S. Earlier this month, Facebook pushed out updates to its Android and iOS Messenger apps with voice messaging and other new features. At the time, Facebook said it was trialling the VoIP calling service in Canada, but it provided no information about if or when that feature would reach U.S. users. Phone Scoop was able to confirm that the feature is now live and available in the U.S. via the Facebook Messenger application for iPhones. It lets iPhone users make free calls to other iPhone Facebook Messenger users over both 3G and Wi-Fi. The app itself does not need to be updated. The calls are initiated via on-screen controls from within individual Messenger conversation threads.
