These days with the influx of messaging apps, it is difficult to keep an accurate account of who is messaging you and on what service. Also, moving from your laptop to your phone in a bid to follow up on messages while working can be a big distraction that can amount to a slow pace of work or ineffectiveness.
But this could be easier if both activities were done directly on your computer without having to look at your phone or navigate to your browser.
Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, with most of us having little or more free time on our hands to surf the internet and chat more with friends due to the current lockdown, the social media giant Facebook has recently launched a desktop version of its Messenger app for Windows and Mac with free unlimited group video calls.
The app, which is now available on the Microsoft Store and Mac App Store, gives you the freedom to message friends and start video calls, just like on the mobile and web versions. It also includes a dark mode, which Facebook has been rolling out as one of the new features introduced to the desktop’s redesign.
Most people despise the use of Messenger and would never use it unless they have something important, have no other option or important friends or family members whose number they probably don’t have, decides to message them via Facebook. However, this desktop version is about to change those ill-feeling about Messenger for most people and those who already love it now have an easier way to do so.
