This is a definitive step by this company to position itself in the market for messaging applications, one of the most used in mobility. Therefore, it tries to compete directly with developments such as WhatsApp, Line and Skype. And, for this, different options are offered that allow it to be a very valid option and, thanks to having a really large user database, there is no doubt that Facebook Messenger is a formidable rival.
When it comes to voice messages, something that very little has been seen to date in messaging applications, the use is similar to walkie-talkie. Recording is done using a button with a red dot at the bottom and then sent to the selected contact. Simple and fast … and with nice results since, for example, happy birthday can be sung in this way.
VoIP calls, adapting to the future
Well yes, little by little almost all messaging applications are including this possibility, two clear examples are Line and Skype (and, perhaps, it is one of the great “must” of WhatsApp to date). The reason is very simple: apart from offering messaging, which is very good to include multimedia files, each time the calls via WiFi or data connection -the known as VoIP- it is more refined and of higher quality. Therefore, in order not to lose step, Facebook Messenger already offers this possibility. Its use is simple, you select to make a call and, yes, as normal it is necessary that the recipient has the same application installed.
It is undeniable that Facebook does not stop taking steps to always be an excellent option of use (such as the purchase of Instagram at the time) and this that has occurred with Facebook Messenger is a clear example of this. If you want to try this free messaging program, you can download it at this link from Google Play.
