Facebook Plans to Introduce Messenger App for Mac
According to TechCrunch, photo evidence shows that Facebook is testing a standalone Messenger app for Mac. The photo was obtained by a TechCrunch source and shows a Facebook employee using Messenger on Mac.
This app is yet unreleased but it could definitely make things easier for people who want to connect with other people on their PC but without the struggle to deal with different tabs opened in different browsers. Have you tried chatting with 6 to 7 friends on Facebook? As you have probably experienced, it is a disaster.
That’s exactly why this app will facilitate people in chatting with friends on PC without the hustle and bustle of the actual website.
In the previous years, Facebook has mainly focused on its main website and mobile apps. It never really seemed to concentrate on the desktop version of Facebook apps. In 2012, Facebook released Facebook Messenger for Windows app which didn’t get much focus until its shut down in 2014. Facebook said to users, “We’re sorry, but we can no longer support Facebook Messenger for Windows, and it will stop working on March 3, 2014.”
In April 2015, Facebook introduced a dedicated website, messenger.com, which is essentially the same as mobile messenger app and lets you chat with friends without the news feed and Facebook ads. But still, a desktop app would be even better. Don’t you think so?
