Facebook Introduces Simplified Version of Messenger
San Francisco: In a move to declutter Messenger, Facebook has started rolling out a new version of the text and video chap app — Messenger 4 that brings down the number of tabs from nine to three. “Messenger 4 will gradually roll out globally over the coming weeks,” Stan Chudnovsky, Vice President of Messenger, said in a statement on Tuesday.
The “Chats” tab includes the conversations — both one-to-one and groups. Messenger 4 will have visual communication features like the camera at the top so that users can easily capture and share selfies. Tapping into Messenger 4’s “People” tab will help its 1.3 billion monthly users find friends, catch up on people’s Stories, and see everyone who is active at that time. Then it has the “Discover” tab, where one can connect with businesses to get the latest deals, play games, book their next vacation, follow the news and more. (IANS)
