Facebook Messenger Updated for Android and iOS
Facebook today announced that the new version of Facebook Messenger it released a few weeks ago is now available to most Android devices. Some of the new features in the app include the ability to see who's using the dedicated Messenger app through presence, and delivered/read receipts that are updated immediately. Facebook Messenger can also be used to message contacts who don't use Facebook via standard SMS, provided the user has the phone number. Further, the application has a brand new look and feel that makes it easier to see who's available for chatting, as well as access on-going conversations. In addition to wider availability on Android handsets, Facebook has made this same update available to iOS devices. Facebook Messenger for Android and iOS is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
