Facebook Inc: New Messenger App

In the previous versions, users could chat from the messages tab in Facebook smartphone apps, and they could download messenger, receive the notifications of the messages and tapping it would switch the user to Messenger. Instead of posting this change on its blog post, Facebook gave notifications to the users directly. Some users might find it annoying as it will require managing two different Facebook apps. Then there might be users, who will enjoy multi-tasking.

Messenger outperforms the previous app as it is faster, simpler and fun to send messages, with lots of potential to get even better eventually. Recently, Facebook added recorded video sharing and a slick split-screen selfie button for taking shots and videos in no-time.
