Facebook Messenger to receive a major design overhaul along with a dark theme
Messenger is supposed to become simpler and cleaner than ever, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg promises. According to him, “when you're messaging, you really want a simple and fast experience. We're taking this moment to completely redesign Messenger to focus on these ideas.”
It appears that Facebook's main objective is to turn Messenger into the app that it once was – a simple to use messenger focusing solely on communication, not a tool that can be used for other purposes like advertising and gaming.
