Standalone Facebook Messenger App Released Today
Facebook has just updated their blog to let us know of a new app they’re releasing at some point today. Facebook Messenger will be the new place to send and receive messages from your Facebook account, yes that includes chat! Hopefully no more buggy chat notifications and the new messaging system not playing nice with your messages in the Facebook app.
What’s more, it’s being released on both Android and iOS at the same time! I bet none of you could of predicted that, with iOS usually getting favouritism over Android with app updates and new features.
The features of the new app include:
- Messages are delivered through notifications and texts so your friends are more likely to receive them
- You can use Messenger to reach all of your friends whether on Facebook or in your phones contacts
- The Messenger app is an extension of Facebook messages, so all your conversations are in one place, including your texts, chats, emails and messages
- Group messaging: You can easily start group conversations, including your location to be shown on a map and attach photos
What are you guys thinking? Big step forward? Or should they be focusing on improving the original app first? Let us know what you think of the announcement and then when you’ve tried the app let us know what you think of it!
