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.

A "return to Facebook" icon allows them to go back.
