Facebook updates iOS app with free calls in the U.S., Canada

facebookapps

Facebook today released version 5.5 of its iOS app, which now allows users in the U.S. and Canada to call friends for free directly from the app.

Facebook users have been able to make free calls via the social network’s Messenger app for iOS since January, but today that functionality has been added to its more widely used main app. From a Facebook message, users can tap the “i” icon in the top right corner and select “free call.” This will only work if both users are in the U.S. or Canada and have the latest version of Facebook or Facebook Messenger installed on their iOS device.

Other changes in version 5.5 include more prominent buttons to Like, comment on and share posts in the News Feed. The design for the buttons is the same one that Facebook uses on its mobile site. In addition, the Share button to repost stories from the News Feed is now available in all languages.

We also noticed that the icon in the corner of posts that gives users options to hide or mark a post as spam has been changed from three vertical dots to an upside down caret.

‘Facebook for Every Phone’ page hits 200M Likes, more than double No. 2 page on site

mobile1

Facebook for Every Phone,” the official page for Facebook’s feature phone application has become the first page on the social network to surpass 200 million Likes, according to our PageData tracking service.

The page was created in August 2011, and back in June 2012 it was the first page to surpass the 100 million Likes mark. It’s still the only page to have done so. By comparison, the No. 2 page on the social network is its official community page, “Facebook,” with 87 million likes. YouTube holds the No. 3 spot with 70 million Likes.

Facebook for Every Phone is a native mobile app compatible with more than 3,600 different Java-enabled feature phones. The growth of the app’s fan page is an indication of how many of the social network’s mobile users are on feature phones. Facebook for Every Phone users are given the option to Like the page when they first log in to the app, a company spokesperson told us in April last year.
