The Facebook Messenger app is one of the most used apps that exist on the phone of every user that uses Facebook actively. So, it came very welcomingly when the company finally released a Facebook Messenger app for all desktop users as well. It has made it very convenient for all its users to chat and video calls from their desktop using the app.
The Facebook Messenger desktop app is now available for download on both the Windows Microsoft Store and also the Mac App Store. The desktop app of Facebook Messenger is very similar to the mobile app and also the version for the app. It can be used to do video calls and send messages to all your friends and family with whom you are connected through the app. The messenger application for the desktop will also have a dark mode. This mode is already available for users of the Facebook Messenger on mobile.
The Facebook Company has also released a new feature as a part of their Facebook redesign that will come with the ‘Dark Mode.’ This feature was released a few weeks ago and has made the life of many users easier, due to the low eye strain that is caused by the white light of any website or application. This feature is currently available only for desktop users and not mobile users. The company is still undergoing some revisions and tests related to this feature and has made it possible for users to switch back and forth between the dark mode and original Facebook mode. But, this switch will be removed permanently by the end of this year, and the new Facebook design will be kept as it is.
At the start of 2016 itself, Facebook announced that it has been working on some apps that will make it convenient for its users to share information, connect with their friends and family. The company launched its desktop app for the workplace by the end of 2017, but no announcement was made on when the Facebook Messenger desktop app will be hitting the stores. Therefore, the launch of the desktop app in 2020 has been a long time coming, and now people are finally happy with the product that they have been requesting the company for such a long time.
The famous video conferencing tool called Zoom used to be the only medium through which official meetings and conferences can be held. But the company started receiving massive backlash from its users when they failed to provide them with proper privacy and security. At the times of work from home culture due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ability to video call and do official meetings with the help of Facebook’s messenger app has come as a blessing for many. It will soon become a vital tool for every people to remain in contact with their loved ones and also maintain the balance between their work life and home life.
The company has been working diligently towards safeguarding the health of their employees as well as spreading awareness about the COVID-19 pandemic. The release of their dark mode for Facebook in desktop was also received graciously by their users, as with the home quarantine situation going on all the world, the use of social media has increased. And to add to the wellbeing and reduce the eye strain caused by the white light of the Facebook app to its users, the company has surely taken a lot of steps.
Facebook was quick with its launched like Facebook dark mode and also the Facebook Messenger app with dark mode. What more does the company have planned for its users is still unknown, but it will surely be for the betterment of the society and to help and aid their users to connect with their friends and family easily at this dire moment of crisis. No further statements have been released by the company related to the desktop app.
