Facebook Messenger, one of the most popular instant messaging apps in Apple AppStore and Google Play Store, is now available on Windows Phone. It was first announced at Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona earlier this month and now it has arrived on the Windows Store.
Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone packs all features we know and love from other platforms. With this sleek app you can exachange messages and photos with your Facebook friends as well as share your location, insert stickers, and express your feelings using a variety of emoticons.
In other words, it is a port of the iOS and Android apps. Even its interface appears similar (if not identical), however we have to admit it blends particularly well with Windows Phone’s minimal look.
Before you download and install the app on your Windows Phone 8 device (it doesn’t work with phones running older versions of the operating system), make sure to turn off the chat feature in both general settings and Facebook app options to avoid duplicate message notifications.
