Facebook lauched new app called ‘Facebook Messenger’ in US & Australia which allows users of the social networking site to send faster messages to friends and small groups on their mobile free of cost.
The new app gives direct competition to hugely popular BlackBerry Messenger Service which allows people to send messages to friends on their mobile contacts list & even push out group messages. Initially, the Facebook Messenger App is only launched in US & Australia.
Facebook Messenger App
Facebook Messenger is a separate app from their official facebook app. Now you can messages with only one click. All the messages are delivered through notifications and texts, so all your friends will get your message right away.
You can use Messenger to reach all of your friends — whether they’re on Facebook or in your phone contacts. All you have to do is type the person’s name.
The Facebook Messenger app is an extension of your Facebook messages, so all your conversations store at one place, including your texts, emails, chats and messages. You can see the full history of all your messages whether you’re on your phone or on the web.
Make plans with groups
With the help of app, you can also start group conversation and message all at once. Plus, you can also add your location so that people can easily find you on the map. You can also attach photos while sending messages.
Blackberry Messenger is having around more than 45 million users around the world. Facebook, with more than 850 million users worldwide, will definitely steal the Instant messenger market.
Apple is also supposed to launch their instant messenger service this year.
