Facebook Messenger | Too Rigid to Discard

For years now people install Facebook’s Messenger app just to chat privately with their friends on Facebook. There are quite a lot of us who have discarded the app assuming that it simply just sits there taking up our valuable gadget storage space. But here’s news. Facbook uses Messenger to bring in new features and capabilities that are very meaningful as a part of the services. The separate app does generate money through the advertising and other features. Mainly for that reason Facebook is sort of pushing their users to separately download the Messenger app although it takes up a lot of space. Also it has blocked users from accessing Facebook messages through the mobile browser on Android and iPhones as well.

Here are a few other things that you can do using Facebook Messenger beyond just sending messages and funky emojis.

  1. Group Chats
  2. Bots
  3. Send or request money
  4. Video calls
  5. Play games

Facebook’s messenger lets you add friends to group chats easily. Even though you can do the same with the browser it seems to be easy with the app. It seems to be like luring people into the app so it is more easy to use it. Facebook lets you create chat bots that can send you latest updates on news and weather. It can also let you shop for shoes           or book plane tickets and hotels. With the bot you can a message to the brand just like any other ordinary message and the reply from the other side is automated.
