Facebook has become a very important part of everyday life. It is the best way to stay in touch with friends and family. It brings the whole world in front of your eyes. Facebook helps a lot with business networking as well. It is not just a social networking website anymore. It has become something that a person cannot do without. However, it is not possible to stay stuck in front of the computer the entire day. Therefore, a mobile app was created which would allow people to stay connected on the go using Facebook. This app is called Facebook Messenger which is the official chat client to Facebook. Using Facebook Messenger, people could go online from their phones and see who was online at that point of time and start a conversation with them. It made communication and connection even easier.
This app allows you to:
Send instant messages to other friends who use Messenger.
Chat with online friends.
Receive free notifications for messages.
Add location to messages. Photos can also be added to messages.
Send text messages to the friends who do not use Messenger.
Access your inbox on Facebook.
Create group conversations. Add more friends to these conversations.
Control the alert and location settings for every conversation you have.
There have been certain updates in the newer versions of this app. Bugs have been fixed and new innovations have been introduced. The 5 best features of the newest version of the Facebook Messenger are-
1.Send messages: Messages can be sent directly from Facebook Messenger to any phone. If your friend does not have Messenger, you can still contact him using Messenger via text messages. This allows you a lot of freedom to interchange between online conversations and conversations carried out through text messages. These text messages are sent and received at a very fast speed.
2.Group conversations: It is easy to start a group conversation and ask everyone whatever you wish to know. It becomes easy to make plans and decide where to go and where to meet.
3.Shortcuts for conversations: There are certain shortcuts that you can use while having conversations. MUTE will stop a conversation and UNMUTE will start it form the stopped point. STOP will disable all text messaging on that number and ON will enable it again.
4.Mobile icon: You will be able to make out who has logged in from the cell phone as a mobile icon will be displayed against his or her name.
5.Typing icon: On the computer, Facebook chat shows a message when the other person is typing. It is now available in Facebook Messenger. You will be able to know when the other person is typing or not. Accordingly you will know if the other person has seen your message or not.
