Facebook tests VoIP, adds voice mail-like service

iPhone users in Canada can now use Facebook to make voice calls, the social network revealed today.

The company is testing the ability to make VoIP calls -- the same service Skype provides -- using its Messenger app. Those in Canada can start a call with a contact by tapping the "i" button in the top right corner and hit "Free Call." Users will have to update the app to the version available today to use the feature and the voice call uses existing data plans.

While Canadians can experience actual voice calls, Facebook is giving the rest of the world voice mails. The VoIP test comes with a global update of the Messenger app for iOS and Android that adds a voice recording feature.

Not only is Facebook adding a feature that no one really uses anymore, the recording and sending process seems to leave plenty of room for error.

voice now and video chat next?
makes sense, facebook want to cover all aspects of interpersonal communication.

skype has some kind of excryption, there are varying reports of how effective it is.
how secure would facebook voice be?

I wonder if facebook will release the voice API to enable facebook apps to use it.
