    Every time I click on https://www.facebook.com/videocalling to install video calling, instead of seeing the “Get Started” button, I see “Video calling will be available soon
    Please check back later.” I’ve been trying to install it for days now, any idea why this may be?

I have reinstalled my Facebook video calling plugin twice but still I can’t see the video calling ICON on my home page or chat window.
