Facebook Messenger iOS App Updated With iOS 7 Redesign, Message via Phone Number
Facebook has been teasing its plans to release an all-new Facebook Messenger application for iOS since October
. On Wednesday, Facebook has finally delivered the goods by updating the Facebook Messenger application and bringing the application up to version 3.0.
The application has been given an all-new iOS 7-friendly design, as you can see from the screenshots above. In addition, the application gets support for Apple’s latest mobile operating system.
Facebook Messenger has also been given all-new custom in-app sounds, and the ability for users to message people that are in the user's Contacts application, whether they're friends with the person on Facebook or not. With this feature, the application uses the person's phone number to contact them.
The all-new Facebook Messenger application both looks great and feels great. Existing users of Facebook Messenger will find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Facebook Messenger for iOS for free from this App Store link
