Facebook Messenger for Windows app
Facebook officially released desktop messenger for Windows. This app allows you to chat with your Facebook friends in a tabbed interface while you are working or browsing other websites. So you can stay connected all the time!
Facebook Messenger for Windows has the version 2.0.4430.0 and is requiring Windows 7. You will notice that this Windows app has similarities with the Facebook mobile app. There will be an icon bar at the top of the program window like the mobile app which can be used to access friend requests, messages and notifications. So you will get notified instantly about new comments, photo tags and more. It will also show you a list of your online friends and the updates of your friends in the ‘News Feed’. This will keep you updated with the happenings on your Facebook.
The installation of this program is very simple. Just go to this website and download the program and once you installed, you can log in into your Facebook account. The messenger is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7.
Basically, Facebook Messenger allows you to connect to your friends without opening the Facebook.com website. However, it is not possible to create a Group chat or to start a Video chat. But I am sure that Facebook is working on it. This giant social network also promised Facebook to develop a Facebook Messenger for Mac users.
