Facebook Messenger – Free Text & Call Services via WiFi & Cellular

Facebook Messenger (or sometimes referred to as Messenger) is a free instant messaging service. It relies on a Facebook account to use, and allows free text and calls to other Facebook Messenger users. Facebook Messenger can be used both on the Facebook website and through the app. Facebook Messenger launched in August 2011 as a means to have some services separate from Facebook's primary app. It also sparked a greater use of the app as a large group of Facebook users were simply messaging friends and family. The Facebook Messenger app helps provide that feature in a streamlined manner. Over time, Facebook added more features to the Messenger service. Users are now able to make video calls, share funny GIFs and even play games. Some features currently being tested in the US include peer-to-peer payments, and business integrations. One such business integration is with ecommerce sites. Shopify has partnered with Facebook Messenger to browse and even buy direct through the app. This is handled through chat bots, automated systems that can understand a user request and reply accordingly. Other chat bots are being rolled out. CNN offer personalized news articles based on interest. Poncho offers weather forecasts in your local area. Spring offers a personal shopping assistant. And more are being added to Messenger on a regular basis. Facebook Messenger does not provide an option to log out of the app. Instead, it allows you to appear as inactive, switch Messenger accounts or turn off push notifications.
