Social network adds VoIP calling to its apps for UK users

Facebook users in the UK with iOS devices will be able to make Voice over IP (VoIP) calls using the social network's apps from today.

Both of Facebook's app (Facebook and Messenger) both have the capability. After selecting an online friend to chat with by clicking the 'i' button in the upper right hand corner and selecting Free Call.

Both users need to have the app installed and be online at the same time to make the call.

While the calls are free in the sense that they won't use your minutes, they will use your data allowance if you have one. Unless you're on Wi-Fi of course.
