New Facebook Messenger revealed and it looks VERY different – fans are divided


FACEBOOK Messenger has unveiled a brand new section in a push to be more of a calling app.

A dedicated tab allows users to quickly see everything related the calls they’ve made and received from any of their Facebook friends.

The service is “evolving” following a surge in people using the platform to ring each other.

Chatty users have sent daily call numbers skyrocketing by more than 40 percent, compared to early 2020.

The move may be unsurprising given how people were forced to rely on apps like Messenger and WhatsApp to stay in touch during lockdowns in recent years.

“It’s a small, but meaningful change reflecting how people use the app,” Messenger boss Loredana Crisan said.

“Some pandemic trends are here to stay.”

It means Messenger will now have four tabs along the bottom of the iOS and Android app.

That’s up from the three that are there at the moment.

This includes the traditional Chats tab, a People tab to see contacts, as well as the more recent Stories.

Calls will be wedged between Chats and People.

The new feature will show a history of all the calls you’ve made, received or missed.

You can also quickly ring someone directly from the tab and even start a group call.

It’s not clear when the update will begin appearing on user’s devices but it looks to be rolling out from now.
