It’s Android’s Turn For Facebook Messenger Update

MessengerAndroidSendPhotos650The new features Facebook rolled out in the newest version of its Messenger application for iOS earlier this week have now been added to its Android counterpart.

The social network released an update to Messenger for Android, saying in the “What’s New” section on its Google Play page:

  • More ways to message: Now it’s easier to send photos, voice messages, and more.
  • Video: Send videos from your gallery and play them right in the app. (Works on Android 4.3 and up. We’ll continue to improve video and bring it to more phones.)
  • Instant photo sharing: Take a photo and send it in just one tap.
  • Stickers shortcuts: When someone sends you a sticker, press and hold down on it to get the pack.
  • Faster search: Just enter the names of people and groups.

Android users: Have you updated your apps yet? What do you think?
