Facebook says its Messenger platform has been upgraded with features that allow users to start conversations easier than the previous version.

With this upgrade now, users will see their conversations and ways to connect right where they are needed most, Facebook explains.
Users will still see the first few most recent messages at the top of their screen, followed by a new favorites section, which highlights people users message most frequently, so users can quickly pick up your last conversation.
”Users can also now do more than just send and receive messages. From sending their favorite emoji to chatting with businesses, getting users news delivered just how they like it or making a video calls, there’s lots to experience on Messenger”, Facebook says.
”Also the company is hoping to show users other things happening on Messenger that they might be interested in, too. For example, with the Active Now section, users can see that a good friend or colleague is available in the moment and that may prompt the user to say hi!”
