Facebook has done it finally a messenger for Windows OS. The massively popular social network has brought Facebook Messenger IM feature to Windows as a desktop download. Facebook is fighting fire with fire by releasing an official version of the download which you can get here through a direct download. Facebook Messenger has been available as a mobile app for some time but this is the first (official) release for a Windows desktop.
The Windows app looks almost identical to the chat bar on Facebook.com. Users can permanently dock the chat bar on their home screen or access chat via the Windows system tray. Its shows you all your notifications, the people online and also the real-time live ticker updates. During chat with a person a separate window appears as below one.
You can also dock the messenger to the right.But it doesn’t support video or voice calling though these features will have to be added if Facebook wants to stay competitive.
