iOS, Android Facebook Messenger apps get voice messages

VoIP calling beta test comes to Canada

Facebook has updated the iOS and Android versions of its Messenger app with support for voice messages. Holding down a button starts the recording process. Using a slide gesture cancels a message, while letting go sends it.

Facebook is meanwhile starting beta testing of a VoIP calling feature for Messenger on iOS. The option is only available to Canadians at the moment, however, and requires that both people in a call have the latest version of Messenger. To make a call, a user has to start a conversation with someone, hit the "i" button, and tap Free Call.
