Facebook's Messenger for Windows 10 is now officially available for Mobile

Facebook's Messenger (Beta) has been available to Windows 10 Mobile users since the beginning of this month (if you switched the region on your phone). Today, the app is finally out of beta.

Of course, Windows 10 Mobile users have been waiting longer than a month for this app. Rumors of the app surfaced back in March. In April, Facebook introduced Windows 10 apps for Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram; however, the former two were available for PC-only.

The app is an iOS port, which is very clear from the Third Party Notices. It doesn't use Microsoft's Project Islandwood; instead, it uses Facebook's own Osmeta tools.

The good news is that being an iOS port, it brings a feature parity to the Windows 10 Mobile app. Just two weeks after Facebook introduced its trio of Windows 10 apps, the Instagram app for Mobile received the major overhaul that its iOS counterpart saw. This type of turnaround is unprecedented for Windows phone users.

The new Messenger app is available from the Windows Store right now. You can grab it right here.
