Facebook Messenger just received a bunch of new features and performance improvements designed to make your messaging experience even better. “Now you can see who’s online and who’s on mobile, and know when the other person is typing. It’s also easier to send messages to the people you message most,” revealed Facebook.
Also, note that “Messenger app is now available for BlackBerry in addition to iPhone (including iOS 5) and Android, with added support for 22 new languages for Android, and 12 new languages for iPhone,” Facebook announced.
Messaging should also be easier now, as you just need to write a message, click “Send”.
Messenger for BlackBerry — If you haven’t tried yet, you can get the app today or watch this video to see Messenger in action:
“Messenger is a separate app, so it only takes one click to get to your messages or send a new one. Messages are delivered through notifications and texts, so your friends are more likely to get them right away.
You can use Messenger to reach all of your friends — whether they’re on Facebook or in your phone contacts. All you’ve to do is type the person’s name.
The Messenger app is an extension of Facebook messages, so all your conversations are in one place, including your texts, chats, emails and messages. Whether you’re on your phone or on the web, you can see the full history of all your messages.
When you’re on the go, coordinating a bunch of people can be tricky, especially if plans change at the last minute. With Messenger, you can quickly start a group conversation and message everyone at once.
If you choose to add your location, the people you’re messaging with can easily find each other on the map. You can also attach photos, so everyone else can see and comment on what you’re looking at,” explains Facebook.
Messenger will be available for both iPhone and Android starting today. Just search for “Facebook Messenger” in your phone’s app store, or get a link to the app texted to your phone.
