By on

Facebook has recently launched its newest Facebook Messenger app after alerting its users on its plans to remove the old messaging feature from the company’s iOS app.

The Facebook Messenger app is a stand-alone app which is specifically designed for just messaging.

In the email sent out to its users, Facebook said, ?We wanted to let you know that messages are moving out of the Facebook app to our Messenger app, a free app that’s faster and more reliable for everyday messaging. Messenger also includes: new ways to send photos and videos, voice calls, stickers, group conversations and more.?

? Share your location so people know when you’re nearby.
? Record voice messages.
? Make free calls, even to friends in other countries.
? Know when people have seen your messages.
? See who’s available on Messenger and who’s active on Facebook.
? Stay logged in so you never miss a message.
? Turn off notifications when you’re working, sleeping or just need a break.

What’s new in version 8.0 is that the text size now automatically adjusts to the size indicated in your device settings.

With regard to notifications, Facebook said ?After a few days, you’ll also see a reminder notice in the Facebook app, where you’d normally see your messages. At that point, we’ll ask you to install Messenger or go to the Facebook website to view and send messages. You’ll still see new message notifications in the Facebook app, and it’ll be easy to switch between Facebook and Messenger.?

The newest Facebook Messenger is a fast, free and reliable way to stay in touch with your loved ones for free!
