Facebook May Debut Group Voice Calls On Desktop

Facebook is late but it’s taking on the biggies like Skype with a new feature debuting on its desktop platform. TechCrunch has discovered that Facebook is allowing a small number of select individuals to make group voice calls on its desktop version. Users can know if they have access to this feature by opening any group chat that might have done in the past and see if they have the phone icon on the top right of the messaging box. All you have to do to initiate a group voice call is click that icon and ask your friends to join the conversation. The only concern here is that a limited number of persons have been allowed to use this service and Facebook cannot confirm if this feature will make it to mainstream or not.

Facebook Voice Calling

Facebook isn’t new in this game, it had debuted the group voice call service on its Messenger apps back in April of this year. There are significant advantages of rolling out group voice calling feature on its desktop platform. You no longer have to rely on a third party app or account on another service to make group calls. Your friends who are already on Facebook will be able to join you without any hassles. Plus if Facebook follows its 50 person limit on desktop version you will have plenty of people online to have a conversation with. You have to note here that Skype allows only 25 people to be on a single call. Facebook has doubled this number on its Messenger app and might be able to do the same on the desktop version.
