Facebook has got several apps under its arm, including the official Facebook app, Facebook Lite app, and the Facebook Messenger. The Messenger was first offered to users and was later made compulsory if you wanted to chat on Facebook on your mobile device, which you cannot do from the Facebook app. But that doesn’t make the Messenger app any bad, as it is one of the most versatile and top messaging apps we have right now for Android.
Facebook Messenger offers you the capability to chat with your Facebook as well as phonebook friends. You can send them text chats, or you can even make voice and video calls. You can send them stickers, emojis, images, videos, files, etc. right from the Messenger itself. The app is fast, fluid, free, and looks very modern too. And don’t think that this app will limit you to your Facebook friends only, as it works just like WhatsApp and lets you chat with your contacts who have installed the Messenger app.
If you already have the app or want to install it, do note that Facebook Messenger APK has been updated to version 188.8.131.52.67. The latest Facebook Messenger APK download file comes with build number 28546815 and weighs 34.66 MB. It is supported on all Android 5.0+ devices. Do note that this is a beta release, which might bring new features but might be unstable. But if you face any issues with it and want to go to the stable version, simply download it from the Play Store.
