Facebook has a lot of ideas, but it has a lot of users too, so what about thinking of them as well? Now, the giant social network wants to make users to use the standalone Messenger app. This way, everyone will need Messenger to chat directly with their Facebook friends on iOS, Android or Windows Phone.
In the next few days, we’re continuing to notify more people that if they want to send and receive Facebook messages, they’ll need to download the Messenger app. As we’ve said, our goal is to focus development efforts on making Messenger the best mobile messaging experience possible and avoid the confusion of having separate Facebook mobile messaging experiences. Messenger is used by more than 200 million people every month, and we’ll keep working to make it an even more engaging way to connect with people, explains Zuckerb… sorry, Facebook.
This means, you will have to download a second app to do what one was already capable of. Not a good idea though, but this is just our opinion as Facebook users.Source: engadget
