The popular Facebook app was updated again in the Play Store. This update brings about nice little enhancements like faster image loading, I personall haven't noticed the big difference, but the biggest change comes with the ability to send voice messages to friends.
Sending voice message instead text message really make easiler for folks who aren't very fast at keyboard typing on the small device, including myself. One other feature is the ability to share your friends' stories to timelines, pages and groups.
What's in this version:
• Open and view photos faster
• Share your friends' stories to timelines, pages and groups
• Send voice messages when you have more to say

Skype will begin rolling out video messaging today to its iOS, Android, and Mac apps in the United States, United Kingdom, and a few other countries, a company representative confirmed to VentureBeat this morning. Changes to the chat service's terms of service in December hinted that video messaging was coming soon.
With the new update, users will be able to leave video messages for friends who don't answer when you try to call them on video chat. Video messages will be able to be up to three minutes long. It's reported that premium users will get to send an unlimited number of videos, which won't be the case for regular Skype users. Another incentive for premium users is that their videos will never be deleted from the server.
Skype's android app will get updated soon, so lookout for it.
