    Sigh, it says I need Google Chrome, Firefox or Opera in order to get this working. Is there some sort of workaround to get this to work in Safari?

    I really don't want to download another browser just to use this feature.

    Does anyone know why or when Facebook will support this feature in Safari?

    From your list, it sounds like it needs WebRTC. That is a Google thing, and though it is in development, it is not yet supported in Safari.

    So I guess Apple needs to update Safari in order to support fb video/audio call then?

    Yes, but I would not hold my breath - as best I can tell they only started working on the project this year. In the meantime I would use Chrome and wash my hands afterwards.
