Facebook Messenger is used by millions of people from all over the world, but some people weren’t happy when the app was released.
Facebook decided to separate the chat functionality from the core Facebook mobile site and Facebook app in an attempt to allow users who were more interested in this function to enjoy it without the need to use a separate app.
Some voices argued that the decision was motivated by the ability to deliver targeted apps within the dedicated Messenger app. Some may love it and hated by others, but the app comes with some excellent features. Read below to learn more about them.
Facebook Messenger Features
Unlimited text messages
The app allows you to send unlimited text messages to your friends and family.
Out of all the features offered by the app, this is the most popular one. After the app is installed, you will receive notifications when you get new messages.
What is makes is excellent is the fact that a small circle will appear on your screen, showing the profile picture of the person who sends the message. Tap on the chat head to open Messenger without leaving the current app and answer instantly. You can also drag the cheat head towards the bottom of the screen to dismiss it.
