Facebook is doing its best to make its proprietary social platforms bigger and better. Services like Facebook Messenger have grown significantly in popularity, but not at the same speed as services like Whatsapp, which Facebook also owns. Today Facebook has just launched a new service that betters the existing Whatsapp offerings, but not for everyone.

Facebook Messenger now supports video calling in a very similar way to what we see with Apple’s FaceTime or even Skype’s video calling. The roll out happens today as an app update for iOS and for Android, and there’s even a video explaining how the service works. Sadly the catch is that the service is only limited to some countries today, which are Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Laos, Lithuania, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, the UK, the US and Uruguay.

We still don’t have a timeline for these services to launch on other countries or other platforms, but we’ll keep a close eye and let you know. For now, keep an eye on the app update on your devices.
