Facebook Messenger now available on web browser

New (and old) kids on the block


Facebook is pretty serious about their chat app, and after purchasing Whatsapp for US$19 billion last year they now two of the most popular chat apps in the mobile category.

Despite purchasing Whatsapp, the Facebook team did not lapse on improving Facebook Messenger, recently introducing the Messenger Platform where users can install apps within the Messenger app (we call it Appception) to enhance communication.

Today Facebook unveiled Messenger available on the web browser and you can access it from messenger.com, so instead of a small windowed chat on Facebook, you now get a larger version of the Messenger app on your web browser. The functionality is limited to individual and group chats at the moment, you can’t drag and drop files or photos but it shouldn’t take too long before those features come in.

The standalone web-based Facebook Messenger is well-received, so much so a developer decides to wrap it into a downloadable Mac app. Though not an official Facebook product, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if Facebook will eventually make one for Windows and Mac.
