Facebook Unveils Updated Messenger Packed With New Features


With Facebook’s Messenger standalone app having already over 900-million downloads, it makes a bit of sense for the company to pump some new features into it in order to enable conversations to become easier. The messaging app has now received a redesign that adds many new features including a new home tab, birthday, and favourites section.


The new interface of Messenger will show the few recent messages at the top of the screen when the app launches. This will be followed by a new Favorites section, which will include people the user messages most frequently.

The Messenger will also featue an Active Now section where the app will show you which people are currently available online are. A new birthday section has also been added, this will show you the people who have their birthdays on the day. The updated application is set to also include a search bar at the top of the screen which will show results same as the Facebook mobile search.

If you haven’t noticed already, Facebook’s Messenger recently received an important feature that reintroduced support for SMS messages inside the app.
