Facebook is bringing voice and video calling back to its main mobile app, the company said. The features have been absent from the main mobile app since 2014 when Facebook moved them into its separate Messenger app. The features began appearing for some people on Monday as part of a test, as reported earlier by Bloomberg

The move follows on the heels of an amended antitrust complaint filed Thursday against Facebook by the US Federal Trade Commission that could force Facebook to spin off its WhatsApp and Instagram apps. 

"You're going to start to see quite a bit more of this over time," Connor Hayes, director of product management at Messenger, told Bloomberg, describing Facebook's push to consolidate more of its services and apps. 

For a full-featured messaging, audio and video call experience, a Facebook spokesperson said people should continue using Messenger.
