Facebook, a few days ago launched Messenger as a standalone website on http://messenger.com.
Facebook launched messenger as a standalone app long time ago on all the mobile platforms namely, Windows Phone, iOS and Android.
And with the recent launch of the WhatsApp web the company has moved onto launching the Messenger as a standalone website. With the messenger app the user need not visit the site or open the Facebook app, since he / she can directly access his/her chats, without bothering about the Newsfeed.
How to use the Facebook Messenger standalone website?
To use the messenger website all you need to do is to go to http://messenger.com and then sign in using your Facebook account. If you are already signed in to Facebook with your account then you will see a button saying “Continue as ABC”. (ABC is your name here). Below screenshot demonstrates the same:
Talking about the User Interface of the Facebook Messenger standalone website, the UI is pretty clean just as the mobile applications. The screen is divided into three parts. Below is the screenshot of the Messenger windows after signing in:
- The first one shows all the chats by the names and the last message sent or received.
- The second part displays the messages for the current chat or the chosen chat.
- The third part displays the details of the friend to which you are currently talking to.
There is also a fixed bar at the top which reminds the user to download the Messenger app to continue on the Messeger.
This comes just a few weeks after WhatsApp web was launched and seems like Facebook launched this on the same lines of WhatsApp web. Do let us know your views about the Facebook messenger website through your comments. Appreciation and Suggestions are always Welcome.
