Facebook Messenger is now hitting new markets including Nokia X, Nokia Lumia and Asha devices. Facebook has officially released the not-so-popular messenger app for new Nokia devices including the Nokia X platform.
Facebook messenger on these platforms is featuring much more similar features which were seen on Android version of the app. It can be used for chatting up and conversing with Facebook friends with the functionality to see online active friends, creating group chats and sending cool photos & crazy stickers to your friends.
Nokia X and Asha users will get the messenger notifications on Fastlane and Lumia users will get notifications in people hub and will be pushed up to start screen. The app is very user friendly and designed in the devices theme manner to make it look in a native style.
Although Facebook messenger has been there for a while, for both android and iOS, but since its very inception, it hasn’t received a very positive response. This is largely due to the presence of WhatsApp as a cheaper, simpler and effective alternative to FB messenger.
Moreover, Facebook’s acquistion of WhatsApp this year, has further proven the fact that Facebook itself, is not convinced with its messenger app, and the kind of response it has garnered.
