Facebook is testing a new redesigned Messenger app for Android users. The new Facebook Messenger is a dramatic renovation over previous versions and it will bring enhancements in speed. At present, the app is available to a limited set of users on Android.
New Messenger will sport a completely revamped UI. Contacts that use messenger will be denoted by blue bolt badge. This way people will be able to know if the other contact is using messenger or not.
New Messenger will also let people Facebook message their address book contacts who they have not even added as friend on the social network. The update means that you can send a message to a person who is also on Facebook but is not necessarily added as your friend.
The company said it will make Messenger available to all members on Android and iPhone in the coming weeks. If all of those sound like welcome improvements, you’ll have to wait a little before it comes out of beta.
