With the launch of iOS7, many apps have been updated to look very similar to the OS and Facebook has brought this over to Android as well in their Messenger app. With clean white interface and blue dialogue boxes and lines, one can mistakenly think that it’s actually an iOS7 built in app.
Messenger is a fast, free and reliable way to keep in touch with anyone, wherever they are. It’s just like texting, but you don’t have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).
One big feature that came along with this update is the ability to text message anyone, no matter if they are on Facebook Messenger or not. Once you open the new Messenger for the first time, you will now get the option to sync contacts with your phonebook and match your account with your phone number. With this, you can text your friends via SMS and FB Chat in the same app.
