Facebook launches new, simplified Messenger app
Only three of the nine tabs that formed the core of Messenger remain in the new version of the app: Chats, People and Discover. Even so, none of the features offered by the other tabs have been removed, the app remains ever so powerful.
Apparently, Facebook thinks that these changes might be confusing for Messenger users, which is why the updated version will be rolled out in phases over the coming weeks. At the same time, the social network company promised to bring more new features to Messenger, including Dark Mode, and a re-skinned interface.
