I uninstalled it, took a week to get use to it. And no i don't miss it at all lol
Plain stupid decision. Just one more reason to stop relying in Facebook as a primary communication service.
We already have this on windows 10, same thing like in the web version. Only difference is no chat heads like in the mobile version.
I have never seen any other app updates that frequently other than Facebook and/ or messenger. And the description is always generic like stability improvement and bug fixes. I wonder how shameless are they to push updates almost everyday without mentioning specifically what is it for.
Facebook is losing users as most have moved to Snapchat or Instagram. There are trying everything possible to get some of them back. Plus it will help with spying too.
Believe it or not this is the beginning of the end of Facebook as we know it.
There's Messenger.com also there is a Messenger app for Windows 10, but forcing Desktop users to use those 2, would be the stupidest thing ever.
Wasn't this transition done a while ago? I couldn't use the app for chatting for a period of over a year now, maybe even two! Maybe the authors of this article meant to say the mobile browser, not the app.
