Social media giant Facebook has rolled out a new update to its Messenger app that now lets Windows 10 -- just like for Android and iOS -- users to make voice and video calls, a media report said.

Until now, a user had to leave Messenger for Windows 10 and go to Messenger.com or Facebook.com to make voice or video calls.

When you start a call, the app asks the user if the "calls use Wi-Fi or your data plan". This is a little odd because a Windows 10 computer does not have a data plan.

"Currently, the Windows Phone app does not have voice and video calling," a Microsoft spokesperson was quoted as saying.

According to the report, in July, Facebook said 10 per cent of all Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls went through the Messenger.
