(Value Walk) – Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), in April, announced that it will start a separate Facebook Messenger app for the mobile devices. The social networking site has tested the app in Europe, and now it plans to roll-over the app in other countries, also. The company stated on Monday that every user will get a version in the next few days, and they will have to download messenger for sending and receiving the message.
After launch of the app in next few days, users will get a notification and a one-week time to download the messenger, after which the messaging app will not work. The desktop or mobile version will not be affected, in the browser.
Facebook said in a statement to NBC News, “Our goal is to focus development efforts on making Messenger the best mobile messaging experience possible and avoid the confusion of having separate Facebook mobile messaging experiences.”
