Facebook Messenger’s Voice, Video features come to Facebook app in Latest Update

If you were quick to download last week’s update to Facebook Messenger, then the new features of the social network company’s main mobile app will be of no surprise. After a brief period of availability only in Facebook Messenger, the options to send voice messages or record video have been brought over to Facebook’s main app via the latest update.

One of the Messenger features still left out at this point are the free phone calls, an option rolled out with little fanfare given its possible implications…

While none of this is “new” after the Messenger update, bringing the communication features over to the main app does make for a more well-rounded social package. Now it’s up to you whether or not they’ll get any usage.
