Facebook Messenger launches free calling for US iPhone users

Facebook Messenger now offers free calling, as the feature has made its way to US iPhone users. The standalone Facebook app allows users to open a conversation with another Messenger user by opening a conversation, tapping the “i” button, and then tapping the new Free Call button. The calls are free using Wi-Fi or the iPhone’s data connection. The VoIP calling service was announced as a new feature about two weeks ago. An App Store update is not needed to start making calls.

What is Facebook Messenger?  Is it an iOS-only app?  How is it different from or separate from the Facebook app in iOS?  In every article I’ve read about this, including yours, the terms seem to be used interchangeably.  Are any of these calling features available or planned for the desktop?
