Last week at the International Mobile World Congress 2014, held in Barcelona, Spain, Joe Belfiore, Vice President of Windows Phone announced Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone. The app was said to roll out within the few weeks.
Now as promised the app for the Windows Phone 8 devices has already been listed in the Windows Phone app store. The Facebook Messenger app comes with a brand new user interface, which is somewhat similar to the Facebook app for Windows Phone, that already has Facebook Messenger Integration.
Similar to the Messenger app for Android and iOS, even for Windows Phone 8 device the app comes with stickers, images, conversation history and much more features.
The app functions in a very simple way like it does in Android and iOS devices. Windows Phone 8 users can now get access to all their messages without having to open Facebook. As said earlier, they will also get to use stickers and send photos privately, group conversations.
Moveover, users can even share their current location so people know when you're nearby. Users can also know when people have seen their messages, who's using Messenger and who's active on Facebook. They will also get the option to turn off notifications when working, sleeping or just need a break.
You can download the Facebook Messenger app from here. It just weighs 4MB, thus it wouldn't be a great deal to download even with your phone's data.
