Some couple of weeks back, i discussed with you the redesigned Facebook messenger app which was only available to a limited number of people. The main reason i think Facebook had released the app to some limited people was for bug testing but now, the app is rolling out to all users. The new version with an all-new design and features will be available for everyone to download.
Along with a new white and light blue design (thats looks more like iOS 7-inspired) and faster performance, along with new chat features like the ability to message someone with just their phone number, the latest update is worth a look. It now stands in pretty high contrast to the stand-alone Facebook app, which can be kind of jarring, but the Messenger experience is now much improved.
Some of the new features include:
- Get to your messages without opening Facebook.
- Chat with groups and make plans on the go.
- Bring messages to life with stickers.
- Send photos privately.
- Keep the conversation going: with chat heads, you can chat while using other apps.
- Text your phone contacts, even if you’re not Facebook friends.
- Share your location so people know when you’re nearby.
- Record voice messages.
- Make free calls, even to friends in other countries.
- Know when people have seen your messages.
- See who’s available on Messenger and who’s active on Facebook.
- Stay logged in so you never miss a message.
- Turn off notifications when you’re working, sleeping or just need a break.
I exclusively gave a comprehensive writeup about what’s new on the new app in my previous post related to this. Hence, if you’d like to read more before downloading, you can simply head over to APK ReDesigned Facebook Messenger Available To Limited Users.
