Facebook Messenger will undergo positive changes. According to Zuckerberg's company, it will be faster and take up less space on users' devices.
An area dedicated to family and close friends will also be implemented. This will tell Stories and all content shared between you and the closest people. It looks something similar to Close Friends that already exists in the Facebook app and also on Instagram.
A function called Watch Party is also on its way. Here, friends can explore, discover and view videos together through messenger, which can be done through video chat or simply group chat.
Although there is already a desktop app, a new version of Messenger desktop will be launched that is very similar in design to the mobile version. This will contain all functions of the original app without limits.
Facebook has been improving Messenger a lot
It is true that Facebook is experiencing a decline of active users but the Messenger app is still widely used. In addition, several businesses use the app to communicate with their customers, about 40 million, according to the social network.
Therefore, Facebook has recently changed the app's design to a cleaner, more modern look. The bottom buttons have been reduced from 9 to just 3, eliminating visual 'junk' from the interface.
Additionally, we finally saw Dark Mode implementing the application natively. We also have the ability to respond to specific Whatsapp style messages and even unsubscribe within a 10 minute window.
For now, Facebook has not announced specific dates for this major update but at the time of this announcement, it should not be long. All of these changes will certainly make the app more dynamic and perhaps encourage more users to use Facebook Messenger.
