Now Facebook has a Messenger website for your Desktop

Facebook fans who fell in love their Messenger App on their smartphone separate from the main Facebook App back in July 2014, I’ve got great news for y’all.

Now Facebook has a launched the Messenger website for your Desktop on Wednesday April 8th 2015. The Facebook Messenger Website works as advertized; Messenger but in a Browser format, marking freedom of Messenger from Facebook both on your smartphone and Tablet and now on the Desktop.


It’s a lot like the Messenger App you’re already familiar with on your smartphone except it has a three (3) column layout. The Left column lists your conversations, a Settings Button and a Compose Button.

The Middle column shows your current conversation or one that you’ve selected out of the many simultaneous chats you’re might be having. The one to the Right shows all your conversations and has a nice touch of a checkbox to Mute notifications from those ongoing conversations.

Settings are where the power is really at. You can disable all notifications and all sounds. Emojis, stickers and thumbs up are back with the Facebook Messenger Website, making you love the bigger screen and not miss your smartphone that much.

Apple Mac users, you’re special.

There’s a Messenger for Mac app that runs n Apple iOS as a wrapper around the Messenger App that you might have already. It’s still work-in-progress, as there is no access to the Messenger for Mac app the Menu bar and there are no notifications of badges, all of which the Developers promise will be coming soon.
