Many internet users love to use social media networks to stay in touch with friends and family. Facebook is the undisputed king of the segment, and the popular platform offers dedicated apps for smartphone devices. Facebook Messenger has been developed from the ground up to allow smartphone users to communicate with other Facebook users without the need to use the standalone Facebook app or the web version.
Facebook Messenger is a handy app to keep in touch with your contacts
The release of the app was met with negative feedback from some users, but the rich selection of features has attracted a large user base. New features and bug fixes are continuously introduced with the help of a generous amount of updates.
It can be said without a doubt that the signature advantage provided by the app is the ability to message any Facebook friend almost instantly without the need to exchange phone numbers. One can also send messages to other Facebook users, which can be quite convenient.
Built-in voice and video call capabilities offer a delightful experience, allowing users to stay in touch with family and friends even if they are at the other end of the world. Crystal clear audio and video quality are offered by excellent compression APIs. Still, this feature can consume a high amount of data, and a Wi-Fi connection should be used if possible.
The latest Facebook Messenger update brings performance improvements
Another handy feature comes in the form of voice messages, which can be recorded and seamlessly sent to other users. They are useful when you want to convey a long message without the need to send a long text.
Activate the dedicated dark mode to keep your eyes safe during those late-night chats with the added boon of reducing battery drain. It is also easy to share photos, files, and videos with family and friends with a few taps. New bug fixes and performance boosts arrive with the Facebook Messenger 218.104.22.168.120 update.
