Guide to Setup Video Calling Feature in Facebook

7 July 2011 By Varun


After a long wait, Facebook has finally added video calling feature to its chat service along with group chat. Group chat will allow users to chat with multiple friends at once. All you need to do is add friends from the icon present at the top right corner of the chat panel. Another feature and the more talked about one that is added to Facebook is the video chat which is powered by Skype.

To enjoy the video chat service, you are required to go through a small process. Here are the steps to setup video calling service:

1. Login to Facebook.

2. Now go to​calling.

3. Click on “Get Started”.

4. Now go to a friend’s profile page (online).

5. Click the “Call” button at the top-right side of the profile page.

6. Click “Setup”.

7. Wait until download and installation completes.

Now you can video call any Facebook friend, but remember that even your friend has to install the plugin, else you cannot view his cam.

Note: Facebook video calling only works with Windows and Mac.
