Facebook Messenger’s Head Of Product Stan Chudnovsky who led the video calling feature tells me, “Whatever’s good for Messenger is good for Facebook as a company.” Video calling in Messenger will become available today for i OS and Android users in Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the U. Cameras start in selfie mode but you can toggle to the backside camera to show a friend what you’re doing.Messenger will adjust the quality of the call according to your connection.This is all part of Facebook’s philosophy that its products have to be good enough to grow without massive cross-promotional help. Protecting people from their own data usage will be important for the feature.It’s often let products like Facebook Deals or Home die rather than pester its nearly one and a half billion people to use them. Only products and features people actually want survive and that’s how the product keeps getting better and better” Chudnovsky reveals. Though Facebook offers a way to disable auto-play of News Feed videos when you’re not on Wi-Fi to save people’s data plans, some users who didn’t still felt burned when they saw their bills.This will also let Facebook promote Messenger video calling without being too annoying.For example, Chudnovsky imagines two people Messenger text chatting for hours, one in a hotel room in NY, another in a room in Paris, both on Wi-Fi.The demo I saw showed just a hint of pixelation and strong frame rate with 2 bars of LTE service in SF.It’s easy to switch to just VOIP audio, and Facebook will gracefully notify you if the connection weakens to where video won’t work.
Here’s a quick video from Facebook showing Messenger video calls in action: Facebook first introduced desktop video calling in partnership with Skype in 2011, but eventually built its own video call infrastructure.thinks video calling will live naturally inside Messenger.Today, Messenger is launching free VOIP video calling over cellular and wifi connections on i OS and Android in the U. Facebook’s goal is to connect people face to face no matter where they are or what mobile connection they have.Very happy.” Overall, Messenger’s voice and video quality were strong despite an imperfect mobile connection.And since everyone you know is probably already on Facebook and connected to you, and you can easily find new contacts there, Messenger could take the hassle out of simulating a face-to-face conversation.It’s all free on Facebook’s side, and users will only be charged for data use by their mobile operator, which they can avoid by using Wi-Fi.One smart thing Messenger allows is for one person to turn off their video feed to make the other person’s high quality.there’s are 20 different ways we can take it.” Perhaps the most glaring omission for now is that mobile Messenger users can’t video call with desktop Facebook users, but Chudnovsky says that should be patched relatively soon.On mobile, he thinks video calling in Messenger will be much more convenient than having to either video call someone suddenly, or switch apps.Bringing it to mobile could Messenger a serious competitor to i OS-only Face Time, clunky Skype, and less-ubiquitous Google Hangouts.With 600 million Messenger users and 1.44 billion on Facebook, the new VOIP video feature has a massive built-in audience.
