“Our goals with this program are to expand our pool of testers and gain feedback across a more diverse set of devices,” Facebook engineer Luiz Scheidegger wrote in a blog post. “Simply by using the app and reporting the issues, beta testers will be able to help us improve performance and the overall experience on a wide variety of Android devices at scale.”
“The Facebook for Android beta program [launched in July 2013] has already helped us improve the quality and overall experience of the main Facebook app on Android,” Scheidegger said.
Before describing here, first we checked this calling feature and found nice voice quality. Facebook has given another good facility that app will ask to rate the call quality after calling. However, It is acknowledged that there is no free biscuit with tea, and the data will be counted as charges on making ‘Free Call’. If the “Free Call” option is grayed, then the persons cannot be called at the time. The company is planning to extend their Voice Calling feature in other countries too.
It will not be a big surprise for the users because the news was already leaked in the market, although the people were waiting for it eagerly. It will be progressive step from Facebook.
