Facebook has made available Desktop Messenger app for all users


Today, Facebook has launched a standalone Messenger app for both Windows 10 and macOS desktops. Last year, at the F8 conference, the company mentioned about bringing the app to the desktops. Previously it was being tested on both platforms for some time, and now the company made it available for all desktop users on both platforms.

The company said that they have seen over a 100 percent increase in users using the desktop browser Messenger for audio and video calling, which is the sole reason for launching a desktop app. With the desktop app, the users don’t need to hover over their browser for accessing Messenger. They can directly use the desktop app for video and audio calling.
