Though the mobile market is growing stronger every day, the majority of users belong to either Apple or Android, leaving little attention for growing shares like Windows Phone. While many app makers completely overlook this up-and-coming share in the smartphone market, Facebook Messenger isn’t making the same mistake.
Windows Phone users can now download and use Facebook’s Messenger app, which was previously only available to Android or OS X users. The chat app is of course an offshoot from the world’s most popular social media network, allowing friends to chat directly, share locations, and send one another photos and cute stickers. The release should make a fair few Windows users happy; the app has been specifically requested a number of times according to Windows Phone VP Joe Belfiore.
At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week, Belfiore announced to a press conference that Facebook’s Messenger app would indeed be making its Windows Phone debut before very long, commenting that it was “one of the most requested individual apps” amongst users.
