By now, you might probably be in love with your Facebook Messenger app which helps you stay in touch with your friends and enjoy texting on the go. It’s fun, simple and easy to use!
The difference between Facebook and the Facebook Messenger standalone app is that it acts as a hassle free way to communicate. All those pesky news feeds, notifications and updates from other people wouldn’t be bothering you when you are talking to your friends or loved ones.
The only drawback is that it works only on your smartphone. There is no way to access it on the desktop until now. Sensing the popularity that Facebook Messenger has gained on the mobile platform, the company has decided to launch a desktop version of the conversation app.
Instead of having to login to Facebook.com where you have to put up with all the live feeds, notifications and more distractions before you could pop that chat window open, simply head to Messenger.com to start chatting.
The interface is really simply, very similar to the one found on phones and it is the skeleton version of FB. There are no feeds or anything else to distract you at all!
In the desktop version of Messenger, you can text your friends, make video calls, voice calls and even organize group chats in a hassle free interface. Even the basic blue bar is missing here and it’s all about conversations.
Within days, we will know how far Facebook has succeeded by launching a standalone website for Facebook Messenger.
Meanwhile, the developers have also rolled out an update for the Android app. While it is yet to be officially confirmed, it looks like users will soon be able to text or make voice calls through Whatsapp without having to leave their Messenger interface. A small icon will be added to the right hand corner that saves people time and allows easier access while they engage in other conversations.
