Facebook Messenger Finally Arrives on Windows Phone [Screenshot Gallery]
“I have a dream”, Martin Luther King Jr once famously said.
I too had a dream. That one day I’d be able to send stickers on Facebook chat from my Windows Phone freely, abandoning workarounds and stupid third-party apps. That day has finally arrived.
It’s pretty much a full-featured client with the ability to start group chats, rename them, mute them, have conversations using stickers, delay notifications etc. We noticed a couple of things that were missing from the app, like we can’t pin chats to Start. And I’d have really appreciated a black background for conversations(AMOLED screen!) Another thing that no one seems to get is opening Nokia Camera(or any other default camera app) when it comes to the ‘take a photo’ option. Maybe that is a Windows Phone issue, and it’ll be one of the things that get magically fixed at BUILD next month with Windows Phone 8.1.
Another bug I specifically encountered was that I’m not receiving notifications for any conversation. Maybe that’s just a unique case, I’ll do the uninstall-reinstall schtick and report back, but until then, you guys go ahead and download it. I have a feeling you’d enjoy it.
