Facebook mobile users have to download Messenger
PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA- Facebook is eliminating instant messaging for mobile and tablet users who will now have to download Messenger, the dedicated texting app Facebook rolled out three-years ago.
The company says the change will give users a faster and better experience.
The update will first affect Android and IOS users in some European countries.
If you have the app, you won't see any change. Once installed, tapping the "message" icon on the Facebook app will send the user the message.
A "return to Facebook" icon allows them to go back.
