Facebook has updated its Facebook Messenger standalone app improving support for managing conversations and handling multiple conversations. Facebook Messenger allows users to carry on group instant messaging style conversations using the Facebook messaging platform; users can add multiple friends to a conversation via either Facebook or SMS, get read/unread status and share locations and photos. Version 1.8 provides in-app notifications to allow users to quickly switch between multiple conversations, swipe to delete individual messages in conversations and see who is available when starting a conversation. Users can also now include friends of friends in conversations and share larger photos that can be viewed full screen and zoomed. The update also improves performance when loading, navigating and sending and provides more reliable push notifications. Facebook Messenger is available from the App Store as a free download.
