Facebook Messenger has experienced a lot of changes in a previous couple of months. With Messenger 4, for instance, it got rid of clutter by going from nine tabs to four and streamlined the interface so it was simpler to send a photograph and begin a video call.
At F8 2019, Facebook’s yearly developer meeting, the organization reported there would be much more changes coming to Messenger in 2019. New highlights incorporate a progressively lightweight application, a devoted area for dear loved ones, a “watch party” feature, a desktop application, and an end to end encryption.
The primary huge change is that Messenger will be quicker and lighter than previously. To accentuate exactly how much snappier the new Messenger application is, Facebook has given it an inward name of “LightSpeed.” It will as far as anyone knows dispatch in less than two seconds, and is under 30MB, which is around 70MB not exactly the present cycle. That is a long ways from the substantial, enlarged Messenger that was around only a year back.
Another new element is a devoted area in the Messenger application for dear loved ones, which will contain everything from Stories to private pictures and recordings that you share with one another. It’s vague what this will resemble presently, yet this sounds somewhat like the Close Friends feature that as of now exists on the principle Facebook application just as on Instagram Stories.
Video is another region of development for Facebook. As per the organization, around 410 million individuals use video chat on Messenger every month, and around two billion minutes out of each day is spent watching video on Facebook. So it bodes well that Facebook would endeavor to combine the two by presenting a “watch party” style highlight on Messenger, which was indicated a year ago in an inside test. This would give you and your companions a chance to find and watch recordings on Facebook in the meantime, which should be possible either in a group text or group video chat.
It’s maybe inconceivable that Facebook has never presented this, yet one more item that the organization wants to discharge this year is a desktop Messenger application. It’ll be accessible for the two Windows and MacOS, and it’ll have the capacity to do practically everything the program adaptation can. As per the organization, the desktop application will have all indistinguishable highlights from the one on your telephone, for example, group calls, performing multiple tasks and the sky is the limit from there.
Facebook hasn’t given any genuine dates on when the new Messenger will take off, yet it seems, by all accounts, to be very soon. These highlights areas of now under testing, and will ideally touch base in an application store before the following F8 comes around.
