Facebook Testing Call Button For Pages On Android App?

Last June, we reported on Facebook’s test of a call button for video chatting, as an alternative to the video-camera icon in the window for text chats. Another call button has surfaced, this one on pages viewed via its Android application.

The call button appeared to the right of the like button, directly underneath the information about the page owner, but it was not clear whether clicking it would automatically dial phone numbers linked to pages, or serve some other purpose.

Readers: Have you seen similar call buttons in Facebook’s Android app or other mobile platforms to access the social network?

Thank you to Blink Vice President of Media Eti Suruzon for the tip and screen grab.
