Facebook debuts new for look Messenger app

Facebook on Tuesday announced that select users of the Messenger app will begin seeing a new look for the Android platform. Faster, more reliable, and cleaner, the app is a glimpse into the possible future of Facebook’s general aesthetic. It’s unclear as to how Facebook determines which users get to see the new Messenger client so just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

  • Reach people faster – You’ll know which friends are using the app if you see the Messenger icon Testing a New Messenger Experience on Android next to their name. If you see the Messenger icon, that means your friend is also using the mobile Messenger app, and will get notified instantly about your message.
  • Message your contacts – What about the people you text with who aren’t your Facebook friends? Now you just need a contact’s phone number to begin texting others using Messenger. To help people reach you, you’ll be asked to confirm your phone number.
  • The new look – With a fresh, new look, Messenger is easier to get around. Tap across the top of the app or swipe left and right to see recent conversations, a list of the people you message, and settings.
