Facebook Messenger has landed for Windows Phone 8, just a week after Microsoft bragged to users about its imminent arrival on the platform at Mobile World Congress.
The app allows you to natter with Facebook friends, send picture messages and use ‘stickers’ to liven-up conversations. It also has location–based smarts so you can tell your pals just where you are when firing off missives.
However, the Windows Phone edition is missing some key functionality from other versions. For starters, there are no voice messaging options and Facebook’s excellent 'chat heads' feature, for easily flipping between conversations, is also MIA.
Facebook Messenger is the latest in a long line of headline apps that are finally making their way over to Windows Phone. The OS, while improving its market share, remains a long way behind Android and iOS across the globe.
