Facebook’s popular messaging application has come a long way since the start as it regularly updates the application to add new features. However, the application at the moment has some serious problem related to navigation as the application is fairly difficult to use if you want to use all of the available features. In order to make it easier for everyone to use the application, the company has rolled out a new update that is set to make the application easier to use by everyone.
The update is set to roll out this week as it targets to avoid distractions from several features. The messenger app is set to add tabs which will help users to keep everything better organized and jump to desired places. In addition to this, there will be a new tabs for Messages, Active friends and Groups. Facebook has revealed that the upcoming “changes are designed to make Messenger simpler for you — to help you get to your contacts quickly, jump into your conversations where you left off, start new chats, and stay up to date.”
Talking about the upcoming update, David Marcus, VP of Facebook wrote, “The new home screen still has all your favorite features but is now organized around making Messenger your hub for connecting with all the people and businesses you care about. Now, along the top of the inbox, you’ll see tabs that help you navigate to your Messages, tell you who is Active so you know who you can quickly reach, and a place to find your favorite Group conversations. The bottom bar features tabs to your Home screen, make Calls, take photos with the Camera button, search for People and play Games, and will also host our new Discover tab as it starts rolling out.
We’ve also added a simple visual clue — a red dot — to help you catch up if you’ve missed anything.”
As the application has a large userbase, it will be interesting to see how the community reacts as the update is set to reach your device soon.
