Facebook has just unveiled a new version of the Messenger platform, built solely for the web. The new website, which can be found at, 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, 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 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.
