If you want to leave the call, tap on the end call or the red button at the bottom of the screen. You will exit the call and other call participants will be able to hear the exit tone.

This is a great feature added to the call feature in Messenger which is said to have over 900 million monthly users and it will be giving active competition to the other services like Google Hangouts, Skype and Slack which provide group calling option to users. If you are looking to use this feature make sure that you update your Android or iOS Facebook messenger app to the latest update, if you have not yet received the update wait for it to roll out which will be in the next 24 hours.
