The official Facebook Messenger App





Rate this App

Facebook Messenger is the official Facebook app that lets you have text conversations with all of your friends on the popular social network. Thanks to this app, you’ll be able to send and receive text messages in conversations which you can later continue on your computer.

As with other instant messaging apps, Facebook Messenger lets you share images, or your location, in the text messages; you can even add several recipients and open chat windows with several people at the same time. Each conversation is then kept in a bubble which you can conveniently move around on your device’s screen.

You can also configure Facebook Messenger to receive sound and vibrating alerts every time you receive a message, and even respond via normal text message (phone to phone) if the person you want to talk to doesn’t have Facebook (or isn’t logged on to it). Plus, you can also make VOIP voice calls from within the application itself.

One of the most entertaining things on Facebook Messenger is its stickers collection, which you can use to personalize your conversations. These fun images are very similar to the classic LINE giant emoticons, and they really help bring your conversations to life.

Facebook Messenger will come in really handy to anyone who regularly uses Facebook (which is probably just about everyone). Thanks to this app you’ll be able to communicate with your friends more quickly, and from anywhere, at any time.

Messenger's strategy to keep itself constantly in vogue is by rolling out new features every few weeks. Though its recent addition of disappearing posts appears to be a dud, today it's got two new bits of flair to decorate your chats: emoji-based reactions and the option to mention people with pings in group chats.

Facebook to incorporate ads into Messenger

Facebook has been rolling out continuous novelties on Messenger in recent months. The arrival of Instant Games to the app was a big step forward in an attempt to dominate the chat app market, as was also the appearance of Snapchat-esque filters. The importance of Messenger is enormous and the Redmond company certainly wasn't going to let an opportunity pass to squeeze a bit of profit out of it – which is why soon we'll start seeing ads on Facebook Messenger.

You must have a Facebook account in order to use Facebook Messenger... which is really quite reasonable.
