Today, Facebook Messenger for Android has been updated with SMS support. Now you can now text SMS through Facebook Messenger. Not only you have a fully integrated app for all your messaging, you’re now able to send voice clips, stickers, and even share your location over SMS on top of standard texting features.
According the David Marcus,
Very excited to announce a major new feature for Messenger on Android today! From now on, you’ll be able to send and receive your SMS messages from Messenger, which means you now have one integrated place for all your messaging!
A lot of Android texting apps didn’t keep up with the evolution of messaging, so we felt like we truly had to make Messenger the best SMS client for Android. As a result, in addition to having a fully integrated app for all your messaging, you’re now able to send voice clips, stickers, and even share your location over SMS on top of standard texting features. You will now also enjoy all the things you’ve come to love about Messenger for all your messages, including chat heads and more.
This update is rolling out to most countries starting today. Give it a try, and as always let us know how we can make it even better for you.
So what do you think about new features? Comments below.
