Facebook Messenger to enable SMS feature

Facebook logoIt looks like there is more than meets the eye with what is going on over at Facebook Messenger, especially since we received word that multiple account support could potentially roll out to the masses in due time. In fact, it seems as though Facebook Messenger will enable its users to send text messages directly from the Messenger app itself, now how about that?

This is another move by Facebook to incorporate text messages into its online messaging and video calling service, and tests for this new feature is being carried out at the moment, and it will also encompass the earlier mentioned multiple account switching. SMS support will be made available for the Android platform only at first, which could be attributed to the higher number of Android users out there, so those who are rocking to the iOS platform will simply have to be patient.

Apparently, the new SMS setting pane will feature a blue and white bar, as opposed to the existing white and blue theme that Messenger runs on. Whenever one decides to text a friend, there will be an option that enables the user to type an SMS message that appears. This makes it easier to tell the difference between SMS and Messenger messages via color – with SMS being depicted as purple while Messenger posts arrive in a blue shade.
