Facebook Messenger Update Available with New Portability

Facebook Messenger (or only Messenger) is a free, cross-platform messaging and VoIP (Voice over IP) service owned by Facebook, Inc, which allows users to send and receive voice and text messages, make video and voice calls and share files, locations, and others.

If you have auto-updates turned on, the app should have updated itself by now. If the app hasn’t updated itself yet, check its Google Play page and manually update it.

If that does not work either and no new update for Facebook Messenger is displayed on Google Play, you can always manually download an apk file that is up to date and manually installs the latest version.

However, if you choose to do so, make sure that you get your apk file from a verified source. Installing apk files from unknown sources is risky, as it can do irreparable damage to your phone in the form of viruses or, worse, data theft.

Google Play is the best source of apps since many of them are periodically verified.
