Facebook is all set to come out with video calling feature on its already very popular Messenger app. The company seems to be looking forward to challenge the market leaders in this aspect and the immediate target are Skype and Google Hangouts.

Though it is yet to be seen as to how much success it will garner, but there are reasons to believe that the company is working really hard to make its Messenger as good as the best in the market. The addition of video calling will certainly boost its appeal among its users.

Latest reports suggest that Facebook’s video calling feature on its mobile messaging platform will allow users to chat face-to-face with their friends by tapping a single button inside the Messenger app. The new feature pits Messenger against similar products from other companies like, Microsoft’s Skype, Google Hangouts, and Apple’s FaceTime, reported The Verge.

Users just have to tap the camera icon in order to start a call and, once it has started, they can easily switch between the front-facing and rear cameras, or turn the camera off completely. The app is currently available in a few countries, including United States, UK, Canada and France, and is compatible across Android and iOS. The feature is expected to help Messenger build on its considerable momentum. The app already has 600 million monthly active users and makes about 10 percent of all internet-based phone calls.
