VOIP via Facebook in Canada Market

In 2011, Facebook launched its video calling services using Skype as its technology partner which allows one to one calling using a Skype Rest API.

Now Facebook has chosen Canadian users to beta test a new mobile feature with VOIP (voice over internet protocol) that enables free calls over a wireless network rather than the  costly mobile data plans.

Facebook’s new Messenger app for Apple mobile devices enables the feature, allowing Facebook users to call each other for free at present only in the land of the maple leaf.

The new version of the app also allows users to send short voice clips to one another rather than typing a message – another example of simple data in the form of an audio file type.

The app, which requires iOS 4.3 or higher, works on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. A great time to be Canadian.
