Facebook has been pimping up its Facebook Messenger app for smartphones recently, letting you send messages without signing up for an account first, in a bid to take on the likes of WhatsApp and BBM. Now it’s begun rolling out voice messaging on the service – how long until it adds Skype-like phone calls over the web?

Facebook is currently trialling a new feature on the app with Canadian iPhone users, which lets you record up to 60 seconds of audio and send to a friend, much like the popular Audioboo app.

BlackBerry Messenger adds free phone calls – but there’s a catch

It’s just a test for now, but it’s not hard to see Facebook using this as a launchpad for a much wider VoIP (voice over internet protocol) telephone service, one that ditches the hard to remember phone numbers and usernames entirely, in favour of simply storing contacts by their name.

Would you use a free Facebook phone app? Are you sticking with Skype? Let us know what you make of the move in the comments below.
