Facebook Messenger is being updated across each Android and iOS with a refreshed, easier look that places an emphasis back on messaging. The app “is now organized around making Messenger your hub for connecting with all the users and organizations you care about,” according to vice chairman David Marcus. The revised home display layout really makes extra feel than the bloated, confounding mess that’s on my cellphone right now. Throughout the top are tabs for Messages, active, and groups. Quite self-explanatory. Messenger’s blatant Snapchat clone, Messenger Day, still gets a big chew of display screen real estate beneath that, although.
The bottom of the app has sections for home, Calls, people, and games. Marcus says there’ll soon be a discover tab down there, as well. That is wherein I whinge once more: I want Facebook might allow users disguise or dispose of the features of Messenger they’ll never use. I’ve never interacted with a single bot; I’ve in no way played a game. i really like Instagram tales and will never experience Facebook Messenger tales.
Facebook says this new Messenger appearance will roll out globally this week on each major cell-phone platforms. Perhaps I’ll start the use of Facebook Messenger app on my smartphone more now that the home display makes sense once more.
