New Facebook Messenger App to support more than one accounts

Facebook logoFacebook has updated its Messenger app so several people can privately use it on the same smartphone or tablet.

The update announced Friday initially will only be available on devices running on Android. Facebook didn't set a timetable for making similar changes to its Messenger app for iPhones and iPads.

The new feature will accommodate multiple accounts without allowing people sharing the app to get into each other's queue of messages.

In related news, Facebook reportedly launch ads within Messenger in Q2 2016.

According to a document obtained by TechCrunch and Facebook sent to some of its biggest advertisers, businesses will be able to send ads as messages to people who previously initiated a chat thread with that company. The document recommends that businesses get consumers to start message threads with them now so they’ll be able to send them ads when the feature launches.

The document also notes that Facebook has quietly launched a URL short link fb.com/msg/ that instantly opens a chat thread with a business.

Facebook did not commented on the report.
