Facebook Updated live Video Calling to Instant Video Messenger Conversations :
FacebookMessenger’s Instant Video : You already could make video calls using Facebook Messenger, but now the app packs a new, lighter-weight mechanism called instant video for chatting with your contacts.With Facebook Messenger’s instant video, you don’t start an instant video chat as you would a regular video chat in the app. Instead, you can fire one up while in the middle of a text chat and send a quick live stream to your friend that appears in a small window on the screen.
With Instant Video, you can bring your conversations to life in the most authentic way — seamlessly and instantly. It’s perfect for sharing quick moments with friends who aren’t right by your side or making your conversations richer by seeing each other face-to-face when you are messaging. Sometimes you want to ask a friend’s opinion on a pair of shoes you want to buy, weigh in on what ice cream flavor they should bring home, or just want to see your BFF’s reaction to your witty message when you’re in a place where you can’t actually talk live.
How it works: First make sure that both you and your friend have the latest version of Messenger for either iOS or Android. Then, while both of you are viewing an open Facebook Messenger conversation, tap on the video icon in the top right corner to start sharing real-time video. Audio is off by default because sometimes you just need to see something, not hear it — but sound can easily be turned on if you choose. Your video will float over the active text conversation that you can continue while viewing the video. Your friend can watch your video stream and share a video back if they decide.
