I've installed the facebook messenger app in my Asus Zenfone 2 but I don't see any video icon when I start a chat. Shouldn't there be a camera icon to start the video call?

This may or may not answer your question but on my iPad in the messenger thingy I do see a microphone icon by where you type your message. Is that what you're looking for?
""EDIT"" In the top right corner, I also see a camera icon & phone icon,the camera icon is like this,only smaller

Perhaps a screen shot would help because I followed your directions on my iPad & it don't show what you say. If the iPad is different, I apologize.

Yes, & I was simply trying to help by showing what icon(s) I had. I truthfully didn't know I had hijacked a thread.

I don't see the camera icon wherever I tap, thanks anyway. I guess here in Berkshire (near London) we have all capabilities. Thanks anyway.WIN_20150704_010910.JPG

I downloaded the facebook app on my phone. On there , you will have access to voice and video calls. The app is called messenger with a lightening sign on it.
