New Facebook Messenger revealed and it looks VERY different – fans are divided | The Sun
FACEBOOK Messenger has unveiled a brand new section in a push to be more of a calling app.
A dedicated tab allows users to quickly see everything related the calls they've made and received from any of their Facebook friends.
The service is "evolving" following a surge in people using the platform to ring each other.
Chatty users have sent daily call numbers skyrocketing by more than 40 percent, compared to early 2020.
The move may be unsurprising given how people were forced to rely on apps like Messenger and WhatsApp to stay in touch during lockdowns in recent years.
"It's a small, but meaningful change reflecting how people use the app," Messenger boss Loredana Crisan said.
