Facebook releases messenger app for Android and iPhone

August

screen_shot_2011-08-09_at_4.33.21_pm.pngA new messenger app was released by Facebook today on both the iOS and Android platforms. It's a simple app that acts as an add-on to your Facebook account and runs independently of the regular Facebook app. You can use it to send text messages to your phone contacts and Facebook messages to your Facebook contacts. The app also supports the sending and receiving of photos but so far, video is not supported. You might not see it if you search for it on your phone, so go to the iTunes App Store or the Android Market to get it. Remember when Facebook bought the popular Beluga app awhile back? I'm guessing this is that whale with some new skin.
