The developers at Facebook have introduced a new mobile app designed to make it easier to reach someone on their phone. The app, called Messenger, is designed to simplify messaging by allowing you to write a message, click “Send” and know that you will reach the person right away.

A New Separate App

Messenger is a separate app from the Facebook app that you may already use on your phone.It only takes one click to get to your messages or send a new one. Messages are delivered through notifications and texts. 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 Messenger app is an extension of Facebook messages, so all your conversations are in one place, including your texts, chats, emails and messages. Whether you’re on your phone or on the web, you can see the full history of all your messages.

Other Features

Facebook has designed Messenger to make it easy to coordinate with all your friends. You can coordinate plans and activities by starting group conversations and keep everyone in the loop. If you choose to enable location servcies, the everyone in the conversation can also find each other easily on a map. You can even attach photos so everyone else can see and comment on what you are looking at.


Messenger is availabile now in the iPhone App store and the Android Marketplace (search on Messenger) or you can have a link for the app sent right to your phone.
