Free video chat no credit card or sign up
Messenger could notify them that they could turn their chat into a video call for free.
It will let them go out and find the feature if they’re on on a cellular connection, but will remind them they could have a more vivid connection for free when possible.
This is all part of Facebook’s philosophy that its products have to be good enough to grow without massive cross-promotional help. Protecting people from their own data usage will be important for the feature.
This is v1, though, and Chudnovsky said the Messenger team was working on a bunch of secondary features I asked about, including group video calling and video stabilization.The demo I saw showed just a hint of pixelation and strong frame rate with 2 bars of LTE service in SF.It’s easy to switch to just VOIP audio, and Facebook will gracefully notify you if the connection weakens to where video won’t work.Facebook Messenger’s Head Of Product Stan Chudnovsky who led the video calling feature tells me, “Whatever’s good for Messenger is good for Facebook as a company.” Video calling in Messenger will become available today for i OS and Android users in Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the U. Cameras start in selfie mode but you can toggle to the backside camera to show a friend what you’re doing.Messenger will adjust the quality of the call according to your connection.
