Facebook Messenger 2.1.4814.0

Stay in touch with online Facebook friends from the comfort of your desktop with the help of this practical instant messaging utility
Conversations with friends, tweets and Facebook posts are nowadays part of the daily activities for many that often use instant messaging software for these purposes. A dedicated solution for one of the most popular services is now available and it is suggestively called Facebook Messenger.

Chat with online friends directly from your desktop

This particular program is designed to offer an intuitive interface that can be used for chatting with online contacts, receiving alerts and notifications, as well as checking out the latest news from your friends.

Facebook Messenger comes with a clean and easy to use interface that is especially designed to accommodate the needs of both advanced and less experienced users.

During our tests we found a neat function that allows you to dock the main window to the screen edge so it doesn't clutter the desktop. Nevertheless, this utility has other aces up its sleeve like chat sounds and pop-up notifications.

Customize the way you chat

With Facebook Messenger you can also access the full conversation for a selected contact, but please note that it will not be displayed within the program. Instead, this feature will require you to log in a separate browser window and read all the messages.

This application has even more to offer as the 'Advanced Chat Settings' window has several chat options you can play with. Thus, you can activate chat only for selected contacts, prevent some from the friends list from interacting with you, or simply turn off chat. The latter choice will make all incoming messages go to your inbox.

In conclusion

All things considered, it's safe to say that Facebook Messenger is actually a smart choice for those who don't want to open a browser window to manage messages and contacts. Also, since it works in a very similar way to popular instant messaging software, this application is well suited for all users as there's no difficulty in operating it.
