How do I video chat with someone or a group in Messenger?

If video chatting is available in your area but you're having trouble using it, try updating to the newest version of the Messenger app. Messenger video chatting is not available in all countries, and certain Internet access providers and mobile carriers may restrict access to this service.
You can video chat with just one person, or with a group of people.
Keep in mind, placing calls through the Messenger app for iPhone, iPad or Android may use your existing data plan. Please contact your mobile operator if you have questions about data charges for calling.
Desktop App and Desktop (messenger.com):
  1. Open the conversation with the person or group you want to video chat.
  2. Click .
To end a video call, click .
Note: In voice or video calls between only two people, your IP address will be shared with the other person’s device to establish a peer-to-peer connection. A peer-to-peer connection uses your IP address to connect directly with the person you’re calling to help improve the audio and video quality of your call. While this happens in the background, it may be possible for the other person to discover your IP address.
