Facebook took a risk when it disabled the ability to send DM (direct messages) and introduced the standalone chatting app known simply as Messenger. However, this all paid off because Messenger is now being used by more than one billion people. The reason why the chatting app is so popular is because it provides users with access to a plethora of cool features that make it easier for users to get in touch with their friends and to also express themselves while chatting.
Another great thing about Facebook’s Messenger is the fact that the chatting app is updated with software improvements on a regular basis. In fact, Messenger fans who are enrolled in the beta program should be pleased to find out that a new update has started rolling out.
Facebook Messenger 126.96.36.199.117 Beta
As previously mentioned, a new update has just started rolling out for Messenger. The update sports the 188.8.131.52.117 beta version number and it can be downloaded via OTA (over the air) channels. However, the update is exclusively available to Messenger users who are enrolled in Facebook’s beta program.
Even though some Messenger fans might be disappointed to find out that the new update doesn’t come with any new features, they should be happy to know that the update makes up for the lack of features by introducing a bundle of software improvements and bug fixes. Therefore, the chatting app is going to run much smoother after installing the new beta update.
Since we are talking about Facebook’s Messenger and the premium user experience that it offers, let’s go ahead and check out which are the top five features that the app is equipped with.
* SEND A MESSAGE -Skip exchanging phone numbers, just send a message. It’s seamless across devices.
