Facebook launched a new Messenger application for everyone


Facebook revealed plans to completely overhaul the Messenger application last year at the F8 developer conference, but it took a giant social network almost eight months to finally bring it to all users.

Now, this application is slowly being launched to several Android and iOS users in certain countries, but a wider launch starts today, The Verge reports. The most important change as highlighted in our previous story is a design that is compacted with only three tabs as seen in the image below, compared to nine available in previous versions of Messenger.

But something that seems to be bothered by some people is the new dominant white color, which tends to drain cellphone batteries more than usual. The icons are now bigger, but the overall design is much cleaner because many tabs are now hidden behind a four-point icon.

The new version of Messenger has appeared on the App Store and Google Play Store, and, as we expected, it doesn't bring new features, only the main redesign of the application.
