Facebook today announced an update to its stand-alone Android instant messaging application. The key change in the software is that it will allow people to create Facebook Messenger accounts without requiring them to have a full Facebook account. The new app will allow people to sign in with only their name and phone number. It integrates with the native Android contact app. This revised app is meant to help Facebook compete against other mobile IM clients. The new version of Facebook Messenger is being made available in Australia, India, Indonesia, South Africa, and Venezuela first, with other countries to follow shortly.
