Windows Phone 8 users can now communicate even more conveniently with their Facebook buddies. The reason: Facebook has finally launched the Facebook Messenger app in the Windows Marketplace.
Facebook Messenger comes with loads of good features including the ability to use stickers, send photos privately, have group conversations, share your location, keep track of all your buddies who are active on Facebook, mute notifications when you want a break, keep track of your conversations, and get notified when others have seen your messages. And you can do all this even without even opening Facebook on your phone.
Facebook Messenger App is available on the Windows Phone Store for the price of free. Be sure to grab it right away if you spend plenty of time connecting with your FB buddies.
If you’ve been using the Facebook app on your Windows phone, its time to take a look at some of the refreshing new improvements that the app’s latest update is bringing your way.
Apart from the usual bug fixes, the 5.2.1 update will feature new Live tiles, which are an improvement over what was available earlier. The primary tile has been redesigned but you will also notice that tiles for chatting, viewing events, groups, pages, and photo albums have received an overhaul.
Additionally the app also features many performance improvements including those in the messaging department. If you were looking for support for additional languages, be sure to check out if you’ve got what you wanted in this update.
One interesting and much needed feature that has been introduced in 5.2.1 is the ability for developers to use one single Facebook URL to login to apps on their phone. Developers can use the new Facebook Login URL tool to open multiple apps with one universal login instead of having to keep punching in their login details every time they want to login to a different app on their device. If you’re a developer, you can grab more information on how to implement the tool on the Windows Phone Blog.
The latest updates to the Facebook app for Windows phone should make it much more fun and convenient to use now. What do you think of the latest update?
