Facebook Messenger for Android has just received an update today, though this is a minor one. The new update increases the version number to 126.96.36.199.69 (build 27014999). The new Facebook Messenger APK update does not really add anything to the app and you will not notice anything new or different after installing this update. However, we have said it before too- every update is important no matter how small or big it is.
The latest Facebook Messenger 188.8.131.52.69 APK update brings all your missed calls with call history in one place, so you can keep track of all your calls easily. You should download this update, but you will not get it on the Google Play Store. That’s because this is a beta release, and beta updates are not allowed in the Play Store. Having said that, testing out betas can introduce you to improvements in performance and stability of the app.
Do note that beta builds are not completely finished off, so there might be some rough edges left out in the form of bugs. Such buggy betas can result in your device getting slow while running the app, the battery life decreasing, the device getting overheated, etc. But there’s nothing to worry about, as you can always get the stable version of Facebook Messenger APK from the Play Store.
The new Facebook Messenger APK download file weighs 33.94 MB and supports Android 5.0 or later devices. You can download it directly from APK Mirror.
