    "I have used Facebook Messenger to send written messages for a long time, but I started using the phone function only about a year ago and it works great. I have used both the voice calling and video calling and the quality of calls is better than the phone app my phone came with. Calls are always clear and crisp and have virtually no lag. I highly recommend Facebook Messenger for making calls."

    "I have been using Skype for many years now. I am astonished at how upgraded this App is. This is the best app for calling or messaging. The calls and video chat work flawlessly now. MY husband is a truck driver and this is a life safer for my family. My children get to talk and see daddy with no interruptions. And, its easy enough that they can work it by themselves. You can't beat that considering my oldest is 6 years old and she has no issues using this app to call her dad anytime she wants."
