facebook messenger web

Facebook has just unveiled a new version of the Messenger platform, built solely for the web. The new website, which can be found at Messenger.com, aims to give users an interruption-free communication experience, leaving all of the distracting Timeline posts and event notifications on Facebook’s main site. And don’t worry – unlike the mobile application, you’ll still be able to access Messenger from Facebook’s main website.

Once you head on over to Messenger.com, you’ll be asked to enter your Facebook account login information. After you’re logged in, you’ll be presented with a nice big view of your conversations, similar to what you’d see on Facebook.com. You can still send photos, stickers and thumbs up signs, but oddly enough, there’s no way to record audio messages like you can do from mobile. The site is pretty bare on Settings, so what you see is what you get.

This news comes after the social network’s recent announcement of the Messenger Platform, which allows third-party application developers to integrate their apps into the Messenger service. Facebook has big plans for Messenger, and that’s becoming clear thanks to all of the recent advancements the service has been receiving as of late.

    Awesome, now I will never need to use the actual facebook newsfeed. Groups and messenger only now.

  • This page is just one big Messenger ad for me. No service to be found anywhere.

      just like me ;) but you have to use little trick I just found out – messenger.com/login ;)

    S’all about new ways to monetize our behavior….

    okay, first off this messenger is a joke. http://www.rubmaps.com does a better job at providing ‘service’ than does this FB crap. Plus, does this messenger get you a little ‘hanky-panky’ action? I think not.

    So… it’s just a big iPad app for the desktop by the looks of it

    1TopSpy software is designed for ethical monitoring for parents who wish to monitor their underage children or for employers who wish to monitor their employees with their written consent. The buyer of the 1TopSpy software must own the smartphone or must have written consent from their children or employees granting them permission to monitor before they install and activate the 1TopSpy software onto the smartphone.

    I created a standalone desktop app for Windows, OS X and Linux, with desktop notifications, voice calls and video calls all working as expected. Download it here: http://aluxian.github.io/Facebook-Messenger-Desktop/
