Messenger for Android and iOS will be lighter as well
Messenger will have a major revamp in the coming months, as announced in this year’s Facebook F8 conference. To kick things off, Facebook will be bringing its Messenger app to both Windows and MacOS.
The desktop version is meant for those working in the office with their computers and depend on Messenger for communication purposes. Like the mobile app, the desktop counterpart will have features such as audio calls and group video calls.
For the mobile app, Facebook announced that it is rebuilding Messenger from the ground up, making the app lighter on storage and faster in terms of loading times. The iOS version is said to be under 30MB in size.
For both desktop and mobile versions, Facebook will be introducing a dedicated area for close friends and family.
Expect these changes to roll out by later this year.
