For those of you who do not know, Facebook's Messengerapp is one of the most popular messaging platforms for Android, the app has been downloaded over 1 billion times, and it is now holding a 4.1-star rating in the Play Store. Messenger 4 decreases the number of tabs down to just three: Chats, People, and Discover. One such update is the use of colour gradients for chat bubbles, so as you scroll up through conversations you'll see colours slide from one colour to another.
Of course, the biggest new feature coming to Messenger 4 for many users is Dark Mode.
These new updates are indicating that Facebook is trying to convert a messenger app into revenue-generating app.
Facebook Messenger Head Davis Marcus tipped this redesign in January, noting that the app had "become too cluttered". The Facebook chat app has been constantly improving for past few years. So you can still play games, make polls, and more.
In the seven years since Facebook acquired group chat app Beluga and turned it into Messenger, it's done nothing but cram in more features. It will also have visual communication features like Camera at the top so you can easily capture and share your selfies.
For what's new, it's all about tabs. Messenger 4 consists of three tabs with all the important features of the original app.
Stan Chudnovsky, vice president, Messenger at Facebook, said the changes were based on research recently conducted by Kelton Global, which included responses from about 5,000 adults living in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, and France. Specifically, Messenger how supports color gradients to stylize chat bubbles.
While Chudnovsky claimsthe new Messenger will be simpler and easier to use - we'll see - he says Facebook isn't dropping any existing features. For example, Groups is no longer an explicit tab in Messenger, mostly because the team discovered that people tended to build out a group conversation from one person to many, rather than going to the Groups tab directly.
"In a recent Messenger study, 7 out of 10 (71 percent) people told us simplicity is the top priority for them in a messaging app".
"We try to be very careful to not do anything bad for user experience", Chudnovsky said of the company's process of slowly introducing more advertisements.
