Facebook is rolling out a new update for the communication app Facebook Messenger for Android with few new features and some improvements. Head into the Google Play Store, you'll now find the latest version of Facebook Messenger.
Facebook Messenger is the best way to chat with other people without going to Facebook to see. It's more convenient than having to go into the facebook app and navigate around that to find your messages. If you send and receive messengers on Facebook frequently, this app saves you a lot of hassle of going in and out of the Facebook app. If you don't use it often, this app also works great to alert you quickly if someone does send a message to you. It stays synced and can stay on top of other apps, making it very convenient to chat with friends.
This app has some nice features like calling anywhere in the world for free. It helps in many ways to call people around the country free on WiFi. Just to name one also do you really think it's that hard this day and age to learn anything about anyone in less than five minutes.
For all those worried about the permissions, it needs your permissions to identity to link your facebook account. For example, it needs SMS because you can text people who you have on facebook but not in your phonebook. It uses the camera when you're going to take a picture so it can upload it to Facebook, and it uses the microphone when you're going to send a voice recorded message threw the messenger app.
Here's a look at what's new in this update:
- Make a Free Calls, you can now talk as long as you want and stay in touch wherever you are over Wi-Fi.
- Just tap to forward a message or photo to someone who isn't in the conversation on.
- Create your own groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place.
