Facebook Messenger For Windows Phone Is Here

MessengerWindowsPhoneFriends650As promised by Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Manager for Windows Phone Program Management Joe Belfiore late last month, Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone is finally a reality and available for download from the Windows Phone Store.

Belfiore said at a Microsoft press event in Barcelona, Spain, prior to the 2014 GSMA Mobile World Congress, that the application would launch within “weeks,” adding:

We’ve been working with Facebook, testing out their implementation for a while. It’s looking good, and we will have it for our customers soon.

The description of Messenger from the Windows Phone Store page reads:

Messenger is just like texting, but you don’t have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).

Features:

  • Get to all of your messages without having to open Facebook.
  • Bring your conversations to life with stickers and send photos privately.
  • Have group conversations and make plans on the go.
  • Share your location so people know when you’re nearby.
  • Know when people have seen your messages.
  • See who’s using Messenger and who’s active on Facebook.
  • Stay logged in so you never miss a message.
  • Turn off notifications when you’re working, sleeping, or just need a break.
  • Never lose your conversation history or contacts.
