Facebook has updated its popular messaging application for Windows Phone. The latest Messenger update will bring the version number of the app to 5.0 and include a couple of new features and important performance updates.
With Messenger relying solely on data as its means to communicate, it is important for the application to be as efficient as possible. With the new update, Messenger will begin caching images, like stickers, to reduce the amount of data that is being used during a conversation.
For those who love to take photos, Messenger will now allow you to take pictures and share them in one tap. Gone are the days where users had to exit the application, instead you will now be able to use the app's built-in camera. A new gallery feature has been added that will give you quick access and the ability to share all your precious moments.
Lastly, Messenger will now have a new groups tab that will allow you to manage people on your list. These groups are fully customizable with the ability to add friends, co-workers, and family.
The updated version of Facebook Messenger can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store.
