Facebook has changed the way we communicate online. No-one can escape the power of social networks, especially Facebook, which has great influence even though it was late onto the scene. The social network has improved its chat function, and now we have Messenger for Desktops to make the most of on your desktop.

Chat with friends without opening your browser

Messenger for Desktop is basically a chat platform accessed via your Facebook account, in which you can instantly get in contact with friends in your social network. It’s nothing different to chat within Facebook, but what is different here is that it works outside of your browser.

This means that you don’t need to open the browser, login to Facebook, and chat from there—it’s a separate program. In this way, it’s a lot more comfortable and you use less of the computer’s resources. It’s worth pointing out that Messenger for Desktop is not an official Facebook application, it does work very well and is stable enough.

The same functions as always, and more

In Messenger for Desktop you can send emojis and emoticons. What also draws attention is that there’s a way to make VoIP calls to any part of the world. With Messenger for Desktop you can also create groups, send photos, record voice messages, and so on. It’s pretty much got everything that comes with Facebook messenger, but smoother.

The developers have created an environment that’s very similar to the official app, but they’ve also increased the integration with Windows. Messenger will mimic the colour scheme you have set for Windows, show notifications on the desktop, and you can even change the color scheme. In short, Messenger for Desktop is something you should try.
