Facebook in all its glory is one of the most visited web sites around, and its messenger product for all mobile platforms has gotten updates to give users a number of new features. Windows Phone was the last one to get the updates, and on Friday got the latest updates. It will help users communicate easier on Facebook and chat easier on Windows Phone.
For those who don’t know, Facebook Messenger is the standalone application from Facebook that allows chatting with other Facebook users. It’s had it criticisms on Android and other platforms for its permissions, but for Windows Phone it’s been smooth sailing. The latest updates are available starting today from Windows Phone.
One of the biggest updates to Facebook Messenger is the ability to sync your contacts easier with Messenger. All is takes is a simple tap to sync, and your contacts will now sync up with Facebook Messenger. This will keep all of your contacts in one area, and if you want to use just their phone number to communicate with, you have that option, which for some works easier.
Additionally, users will now have the ability to add colorful drawings, text-to-photos, and photos from their camera before sending them. For those who like to send photos to other users, possibly draw pictures to them, or annotate existing photos, this can be a big thing. The ability to send photos on Facebook Messenger continues to be a big thing, and many do this frequently.
