Facebook Messenger 4’s simplified user experience is rolling out worldwide starting today

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

A common complaint about Facebook's apps (and, really, apps in general) is that they suffer from feature creep: the tendency for products to add more and more often unwanted features on top of the core functionality they originally became popular for. Messenger is a prime example of this trend, having gone from a simple instant messaging app to sort of a bloated mess. Facebook wants to make that right with the simplified Messenger 4, which is rolling out to everyone starting today.

Friday, October 12th, 2018

You've almost certainly said something you regretted in a chat, whether it was because you were tired, angry, or just looking at the wrong conversation — but Facebook Messenger could soon get a feature that'll let you take those misguided statements back. Evidence has been found that an "unsend" option is in the works.

The implementation seems pretty straightforward: long pressing on a sent message will give you options to delete it or unsend it.

Facebook’s promised Messenger redesign is starting to roll to some users

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

During its F8 2018 conference in May, Facebook previewed a major redesign to Messenger that it had teased earlier in the year, saying it would simplify the experience, remove some of the unnecessary interface elements, and put emphasis on the features most users want to get to quickly. Oh, and it should have a dark mode too. While the company said the new look would come soon, it took a bit over four months for us to see the first sign of it.

Facebook Messenger has finally added an adaptive icon

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Sometimes we report ground-breaking, interesting, and engaging news here on Android Police, but you all know that we don't shy away from the fluff either. And in that vein, we're here today to discuss a small, but very significant(TM) change in the Facebook Messenger app: following Instagram, it now has an adaptive icon too. It only took one year!

Behold the beauty:

Left: Old (v.179) Right: New (v.180)

Seriously though, I'm sure we're all thinking that Facebook could have done a better job than to slap an icon mask around the Messenger logo to make it adaptive, but oh well.

Facebook Messenger Kids lets children add their own friends — with parental oversight

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Facebook is currently rolling out a new passphrase feature to its Messenger Kids app, allowing children to send and accept friend requests on their own. Before anyone freaks out, it's important to note that both sets of parents still need to approve the connection.

The way it works is that Facebook will generate a random four-letter password for each child. This password is then shown to the other kid who enters it into his or her own app.

Facebook Messenger Kids getting new features focused on being nice, coming to Canada and Peru

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Facebook's Messenger Kids came to Android early this year. The app is meant to provide a safer experience for children 13 and younger, having parents more involved in their online communications than they would otherwise be. If you were ever a child, though, you may remember than kids can be pretty mean. Evidently aware of this, Facebook has announced that Messenger Kids will be getting a number of features that encourage nice behavior.
