Messenger – Text and Video Chat for Free review
Published & copyrighted by Facebook
Messenger is a text and video chat application for smartphones, tablets, and personal computers. The app, which is free to download and use, was developed by Facebook and launched in August 2011. With Messenger, users can send text, photos, videos, and voice messages to individual contacts or groups of contacts. The app also supports video calling and VoIP (Voice over IP) calls. Messenger is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry devices, as well as for Mac and Windows computers. As of January 2015, Messenger had more than 600 million monthly active users.
Messenger’s features are similar to those of other chat applications, such as WhatsApp and Viber. However, Messenger offers some unique features, such as the ability to send money to friends (in the United States only), the ability to play games within the app, and the ability to video chat with up to 50 people at a time. In addition, Messenger integrates with Facebook’s other products and services. For example, users can see when their Facebook friends are online and available to chat, and they can also receive notifications when they receive new Facebook messages.
Messenger’s design is clean and simple. The app’s main screen consists of a list of contacts, with a search bar at the top. Users can tap on a contact to start a conversation. Conversations are displayed in chronological order, with the most recent messages at the bottom. When a user is typing a message, a “typing…” indicator is displayed beneath the message. And when a user receives a new message, a push notification is displayed on the device’s screen.
Messenger is a very user-friendly chat application. The app is easy to set up and use, and it offers a great selection of features. However, one downside is that the app requires a data connection in order to work.
Overall, Messenger is a popular messaging app that lets you send text, photos, videos and even voice messages. It's free to use and you can even make video calls. You can also add emojis, stickers and other images to your messages. You can also create group chats and share your location with others.
