Facebook Messenger Features

  • Messages – In case exchanging phone numbers is too old school for you, and then a quick user ID search will have you sending messages in no time.
  • Calling – Facebook messenger can support both audio and video calls. Group calls can also be made as well as international calls — a great way to keep in touch with your friends worldwide.
  • Group actions – If you create a group on Messenger, you will gain access to some fun, interactive actions. These include making decisions with polls, location sharing, and splitting the bill.
  • File transfer – Messenger is a quick and easy way to transfer files like photos, videos, and documents. If you’re feeling lazy and don’t feel like talking, you can send voice messages to your friends. Pretend you’re using a walkie talkie across a continent.
  • Local business interactions – Facebook created a unique profile for local businesses. Because of this, the user can see what products and services are available nearby. Make a reservation at a restaurant, schedule an appointment at a dentist, or order some sweets from the best bakery in town.
  • Connect with Paypal – If you live in the US, UK or France, then you can send money to your friends via Paypal directly from the Messenger app. Paypal only needs an email as transaction information. Facebook uses email as a user ID, so everything is in place.
  • Games – If you are on the subway and still have an internet connection, you will probably cure your boredom by playing a game. Invite your friends on Facebook to play the game with you.
