Facebook Messenger for Windows now official

Facebook logoYesterday the Windows Facebook for Messenger app was leaked, and it looks like Facebook has decided to capitalize on its premature release. Instead of going after the people who leaked the link or taking the files offline, Facebook has now officially released the app to the public. In case you weren’t aware, the Facebook Messenger app allows Facebook users to chat with their friends without having to launch Facebook in a web browser.

In addition supporting Facebook chat, the app allows users to check their notifications, friend requests and keep abreast with all the latest news thanks to the Facebook ticker that is present on top of the contact list. While there is no official website or blog announcing it yet, the file can be downloaded from the same URL as before.

The Facebook Messenger app only works on Windows (7 and Vista) computers at the moment, so Mac/Linux users will have to turn to third party apps in the meantime. New features such as group chat, video calling, limiting chat availability and more will be featured in upcoming versions. In the meantime give the app a spin and let us know what you think of it.
