The New Facebook Messenger: Everything To Know
There are a lot of messaging apps to choose from now, each with their own shticks and benefits. However, many have come and go and only a select few have cemented their significance. One of those has been Facebook Messenger, which has now been revamped with a few convenient changes.
According to Wired, the upgraded Facebook Messenger allows compartmentalized chats between recents, favorites, active users, and unopened messages. This alone should make things easier as users no longer have to scroll down an endless list of chats, nor will they have to repeatedly search for who they wish to speak with.
Although, users will not get the chance to populate these lists themselves, as it is Facebook that pre-populates this group depending on who the user speaks to most often.
Other than that, there is also a shortcut that reminds users of the birthdays of friends that are connected to them via Facebook. This eases the process of greeting via messenger by a few clicks.
The overall look is simpler, cleaner and a lot more efficient than the one before.
Indeed, the pressure is on Facebook to keep their messaging arm relevant. Unlike other companies like Google or Apple, smartphone users are not stuck with the FB messenger - users choose to keep this on their handheld devices.
For now, Facebook does not have much to worry about as the actual app has around 1.65 billion users monthly, and the messenger app has over 900 million. Still, they are trying to keep their feet on the ground and not be swayed by competition.
As written on Facebook's Newsroom, the company hopes to make things easier for its users by presenting them with only the relevant information. And this is just the beginning. Andrew Song, Facebook's product manager, said, "We're hoping this helps extend and open up the functionalities of Messenger to more people."
