Facebook added the ability to send voice messages to its Messenger app for iOS and Android Thursday. To send a voice message, tap the + button beside where you traditionally type a message in the Messenger app. Then select Record, holding the button down to speak. When you release the Record button, your voice message will be sent to your recipient. Along with today’s update, Facebook has also started testing VoIP functionality in Canada. iPhone users in the country can try the feature by tapping the “I” button in the top right corner of a conversation with a person they would like to call, and then tapping Free Call. Important to note: While free to use, these VoIP calls will use your existing data plan, which could get pricey if you use the feature often.
