World's leading social networking platform Facebook has finally made its messenger app universal for iOS devices. Earlier it was only compatible with the iPhone not the iPad.
Moreover, unlike the regular FB Messenger app for Android and iPhone, iPad users will get to see a multi-window interface, which lets users see a list of conversations and current chat simultaneously.
Also iPad users will get all those perks in the app like the stickers and in-app calls. However, it does not have split-screen selfie camera and tap-and-hold quick video recordings features that were introduced recently.
Apart from the app features, the updates to the app include bug fixes and the ability to save videos within the app directly to your phone's camera roll. Call tweaks have been implemented to make connecting with others via voice a more reliable experience.
Facebook announced few months back that Messenger has over 200 million users. It also updates its Android and iPhone app with voice calling, stickers.
Facebook is trying its best to make its messaging app the best in the market. The company thus maneuvered to meet the same end and acquired other popular apps like WhatsApp.
However, there are other apps, who are giving the company a hard run for its money esp. in the messaging arena. These companies are Viber, Line, and Skype and are currently very popular as well. Further, apps like like Hike, WeChat, ChatOn, and BBM are yet another set of instant messaging mobile apps which attracts a considerable chunk of users from growing markets including India.
