Firefox 41 Comes With Built-In Instant Messaging

Firefox-Hello-600x386

Mozilla has launched the latest version of its Firefox browser complete with a built-in instant messaging feature.

With Hello being built directly into the browser, users can set up free audio calls or video chats. Because the service is part of the browser, it eliminates the need to set up an account, share personal information and download software.

Mozilla has said it plans to further expand Hello’s capabilities with the help of Telefonica and will be testing new features such as screen sharing and online collaboration “so people can be more productive and get the most out of their video calls.”

Also updated was Firefox Accounts. The update provides access to services like Firefox Sync, which enables users to “take browsing data such as passwords, bookmarks, history and open tabs across your desktop and mobile devices.”

The update to Accounts makes it possible for users to personalize their Firefox Account profile in Firefox for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android by adding a photo.
