Facebook is all set to launch a new Messenger App. Mobile messaging over a network connection is a passion these days. Facebook has launched a new messaging service for people who aren’t registered with the social network. They can be use Facebook Messenger to chat just by giving only information your name and mobile number.
Facebook purchased the Beluga messaging app over a year ago from KiK messanger and converted it into the present-day Messenger App that will help Facebook users to quickly send messages to other users and sms messages to non-Facebook numbers in one interface, without opening the busy Facebook mobile app. The Messenger app can be use by non-Facebook users by downloading the Android version to create an account and send messages over a network connection to alsers and non-Facebook users. This idea was for those people who don,t have account on facebook can take benefit of “free hit” of facebook service.
Earlier this week there were rumours about Facebook looking at buying cross-platform instant messaging service Whatsapp but the social networking giants has put an end to all of it by expanding its already existing chat service to encompass IM too.
This service is only open for Android users in India, Indonesia, Australia, Venezuela and South Africa can take advantage of the Messenger update.
This venture isn’t Facebook’s first foray into the world of smartphones and apps. In April, the company paid $1 billion for Instagram – an app which allows users to take pictures with their handset, add filters, and instantly share them on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
The new Facebook Messenger app can be downloaded free from Google Play.
