    After installing the new apps now by Facebook calling Microsoft Great again.. LOL the apps that they have produced are total crap. yes they do the basic stuff but my friend showed me yesterday that his messenger does video and chat.. what the heck why would they make and app and cripple it ? I don't understand that every app on windows is not the full thing. there is no reason for them not to include this stuff and no wonder why people move to other apps
    Instagram is crippled. no periscope twitter is intergraded all this stuff but not for windows ..
    what the heck, I would rather them not release and app and releasing a tease of what the app can do but we wont let you on windows ...

    The Facebook app is still beta. Messenger is **** right now but there have been reports the video and calling options have appeared in app meaning it's most likely a server side thing to enable them or maybe they were waiting for the anniversary update to officially roll out to update their app who knows.

    Personally I am waiting for the video calling on messenger and live streaming in the Facebook app.

    Honestly, I dont know why its absent, but please its one of a zillion features.

    On my time on both competing platforms, I have used the voice calling on Messenger once. I have also used video calling once but that was an accident.

    I got my colors and nicknames so I'm happy. (not that I use WP at this time.)

    It constantly freezes for me and having the Facebook ported app plus Microsoft's app installed is not possible as the latter starts showing the prompt to uninstall the app. Uninstalling the ported FB app removes that prompt from Microsoft's app.
