Facebook Video calling was made possible by a Skype plug-in, which is downloadable on-demand with a single permission, allowing a user to launch a video chat session with another user in just 2 clicks. The recipient, however, can answer without having the Skype software installed.

However, the likelihood of upgrading to a conference calling capability much later was declared possible according to report credited to Mark Zuckerberg.
The Group Chat feature, on the other hand, makes it possible for group assembly and interaction on the social network.
