The facebook messenger for android users has got an update, which would benefit the users in India, Venezuela, Australia, Indonesia and South Africa. With this update, the messenger would now allow users to send messages to all their contacts and stay in touch with them wherever they go. The messages are delivered instantly and everything is just a click away.
How Simple Is That?
The new upgrade has made messaging faster and easier. Facebook has already made their announcement on their newsroom. All that a user needs to do is log in using his/her name and mobile number. Previously, a user needed a facebook account to log in to the messenger.
What it offers??
This new updated app allows you to send messages to all your mobile contacts instantly. The user can also share photos and enter into group conversations.
All that you need is to install the app on your phone and click on the get started button. The app will find out the other contacts using messenger. The new messenger also allows non-facebook users to use this messaging service.
This new application will definitely prove to be a serious rival to Whatsapp. Allowing non-face-book users to enjoy messaging is a clear indication of facebook extending its arms into the mobile market.
The mobile ads have clearly worked for the site and their Q3 results stand witness to it. In a conference call the CEO: Mark Zuckerberg stated that he wanted to dispel the myth that Facebook could not make money on mobile. By launching this new upgraded version of the app, the CEO, he is sending out a clear message that the social networking giant is all set to forage into the mobile arena in a big way.
