Facebook Messenger is one of the most popular apps in the world, but this was not always the case. The app was released in 2011 as an alternate way of chatting with friends while you are using a smartphone. A large number of people installed it, but many continued to use the built-in chat features present in the official Facebook app. Today, we’ll talk about Facebook Messenger 22.214.171.124.116 for Android, which comes with a revamped design, bug fixes, and improvements.
To boost the number of users, Facebook decided to retire the chat functionality of the Facebook app, forcing users to install Facebook Messenger if they wished to continue to chat with the help of their smartphones. The decision was announced in June 2016, and some people were unhappy. However, Facebook strived to improve the app, and it better than ever. Read below to learn more about the app and its features.
