facebook.jpgFacebook today updated its main iOS app, adding free VoIP calling in the United States and Canada. Facebook previously beta tested the feature in its Messenger iOS app, which received an update to allow voice calling in January.

As in the Messenger app, voice calling within Facebook for iOS can be accessed by tapping on a friend’s name in the chat menu and then tapping on the info button, which reveals the option to make a free call.

Both parties must install the newest version of Facebook to activate the feature. Facebook’s latest update also adds newly redesigned Like, Share, and Comment buttons.

-New button design makes it easy to like, comment and share posts in News Feed.
-Improved buttons to like, comment and share posts
-Share button to re-post stories from your News Feed now available in all languages
-Call friends for free right from Facebook (US and Canada)
-Free calling uses your existing data plan.

Facebook is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

The new update is a major fail. Newsfeed has disappeared or is broken, deleting and reinstalling doesn't help

I experienced the complete opposite. My newsfeed loads much quicker and scrolling it is smoother. The whole app feels more smooth actually.
