Facebook users to require separate mobile app for messages


Facebook  has announced to  its users  to install a separate messaging app to allow them send and receive messages in a bid to ensure  consistent and high-quality experience

Facebook began notifying users in France, England and several other European countries that beginning in a couple of weeks they will need to install the company’s standalone Messenger app in order to send and receive message.

The free, standalone Messenger app is faster than the messaging service that’s currently built into Facebook’s primary mobile app.

Facebook users can also access more features in the Messenger app, such as the ability to make voice phone calls, the company said

“We have built a fast and reliable messaging experience through Messenger and now it makes sense for us to focus all our energy and resources on that experience,” the company  added.
