Facebook Messenger comes to Windows Phone


Back at MWC, there were two announcements that of interest now that messaging apps are the in-thing after Facebook splashed $19 billion in cash and stock options for Whatsapp: that Blackberry Messenger would come to Windows Phone and that Facebook’s Messenger app would make the journey to the Windows Phone Store. While we still await Blackberry to avail BBM, just like Microsoft announced in Barcelona, Messenger is now available.

Just like is the case on iOS and Android, the app is a standalone and provides a faster way of chatting with your friends without necessarily using the main Facebook app for Windows Phone. Group conversations, stickers and photo sharing are all supported. plus you can always turn messages off when you’re sleeping or not in need of any sort of disturbance.

A quick search for the app on the Windows Phone Store yielded nothing but using this link got me somewhere.
