Facebook New Messenger App Update November 2013: Chat With Friends Via Phone Number, Not Just Facebook


To say Facebook Messenger app has an update is an understatement, it’s more like a complete revamp. The new Messenger app has gotten a new beautiful look, although it seem the new look matches closely to iOS 7 theme. The big new shiny feature is the ability to text your phone contacts, even if you’re not Facebook friends. It’s hard for Facebook to ignore the messaging market with the success of WhatsApp, LINE, WeChat and other messaging apps alike, and especially more with the recent phenomenal success of Snapchat.

When Facebook Messenger first launched as an app it didn’t sit well, users were figuring out what to make use of it since you could only message friends on Facebook but what about everyone else in our phone contacts who aren’t connected? Nobody actually cared about using Facebook Messenger after a while when other chat apps are more accomplished in messaging contacts in the phone.

The new Facebook messenger tries to combine the best features you can find in your current chat apps. From uploading photos to emoticon stickers and creating group chats. There’s no unnecessary features or radical designs and gestures, it actually feels pretty grown up. Less is really more in this revamp plus the app and stickers are still free too. The new features coupled with the old such as messaging pages and chat histories makes the new Messenger that much compelling to use as a main messaging app. Available on Android and iOS starting today.
