    The phone icon on the updated Messenger is on the top right corner of the screen in the Windows 10 app. A chat glows green when the other person is currently active, Venturebeat reported.

    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.
