  • A while back Facebook has brought Facebook Messenger to a rather big step towards improving the user experience and it integrated SMS messaging on selected devices, letting users have all in one place and even use the app as the main texting app (available in settings). The new version also integrated swiping left anywhere in the app to quickly see who’s available and send a message and add friends you message most to the top of your Favorites.

    The upcoming Facebook Messenger update will allow non-Facebook users to use the app for the sole purpose of sending SMS messages. With the previous update, users could select to send text messages using the app as the default one for this type of communication.

    To use the app, users can now sign-in or sign-up using only their name and phone number. The feature will be available at first in India, Indonesia, Australia, Venezuela, South Africa, with more countries to follow. iOS users are also likely to get the feature in the near future. The app is available for free on the Play Store.
