Until now, in order to make a voice or video call, a user had to leave Messenger for Windows 10 and go to Messenger.com or Facebook.com. However, now the Windows apps will work similar to the Android apps with full functionality – the desktop users will be able to make voice and video calls.
The phone icon on the updated Messenger is on the top right corner of the screen in the Windows 10 app. A chat glows green when the other person is currently active, Venturebeat reported.
When you start a call, the app asks the user if the “calls use Wi-Fi or your data plan”. (Windows 10 computer does not have a data plan)
This update comes a few months after the Facebook app for Windows 10 allowed users to record and share Live broadcasts from their desktop and tablet. The unique feature is currently limited to Windows 10 devices.
