The social media giant recently launched a new version of messenger called “Messenger 4”.
Messenger 4, as Facebook is calling it, will refocus on conversations. To make it much easier to find the features you care about, the new Messenger will have three tabs instead of nine. Messenger 4 will have visual communication features like Camera at the top so you can easily capture and share your selfies.
Once you tap into Messenger 4’s People tab, you can find friends, catch up on people’s Stories, and see everyone who is active right now. Then you have the Discover tab, where you can connect with businesses to get the latest deals, play Instant Games, book your next vacation, follow the news and more.
Conversations with people can be express using custom nicknames, emojis and chat colors. With color gradient, multiple colors can be used for chat bubbles, and the colors will change as you scroll up and down a conversation.
According to Facebook, the new Messenger app will roll out to customers “over the coming weeks” so not everyone will have access to the refreshed design right away.
