Facebook Messenger for iPhone and Android Released
Facebook has just launched their Facebook Messenger for Mobile, a standalone messaging app for smartphones. According to Mashable, Facebook will be rolling out several new features to its Facebook Chat feature.
Now you can send messages directly to your friends on their mobile phones, so you stay in touch no matter where you go. Message friends using Facebook Messenger for Mobile or anyone in your mobile contacts. This looks more of an approach like WhatsApp, BlackBerry Messenger etc.
Messaging is now even faster and you don’t have to be online in Facebook Chat all the time just to chat with friends. You can stay offline in Facebook Chat and still chat with friends using the mobile app.
Facebook Messenger for Mobile also supports group conversations, to make plans on the go and you can also share photos. I’m guessing, Facebook would soon be releasing video chat features as well to the mobile apps.
Facebook Messenger is already available for iPhone and Android in their respective app markets.
