Why wait for F8 to kick off? The new features for Facebook Messenger just keep coming.

The social network announced the addition of Video Chat Heads to Messenger in a post on its Messenger page:

We’re introducing Video Chat Heads for Messenger–a new way to video chat with your friends. With Video Chat Heads, you can talk to your friends from a smaller Chat Head instead of using your full phone screen. This allows you to continue a video call while you’re messaging other people, or–on Android–even while you are using other apps. Give it a try! Video Chat Heads will be available for both iOS and Android users, around the world, in the next few days.
