The official Facebook Messenger app has been available on both iOS and Android since launch, and today it finally made its way to BlackBerry. The app is really just a quick way to send messages to your friends through Facebook, and they are delivered through notifications and texts to their device. This way you won't have to struggle deciding if you should send a text or email, and you'll know the person will receive the message when they're on the go.
More and more of us rely on our phones to send and receive messages. But it isn't always easy to know the best way to reach someone on their phone. Should you send an email or text? Which will they check first? Did they even get your last message?
We think messaging should be easier than that. You should be able to write a message, click "Send" and know that you will reach the person right away.
Messenger is a separate app, so it only takes one click to get to your messages or send a new one. Messages are delivered through notifications and texts, so your friends are more likely to get them right away.
You can use Messenger to reach all of your friends -- whether they're on Facebook or in your phone contacts. All you have to do is type the person's name.
The Facebook Messenger app is a free download and is available for most devices. Check out more at the Facebook blog, or hit the link below to download OTA to your device.
