No doubt Facebook is the favorite social networking site of millions of people across the globe. To enhance users’ social experience Facebook unveils new features often. To be honest, Facebook users are getting more and more features quite often after the launch of its rival Google+. Thanks to the healthy competition between the two. Quite recently Facebook released a new chat messenger app for Windows 7 users. It was a sudden release as reported by leading technology sites and that due to the leak of the app before its official launch. So clearly the trial version of Facebook Chat Messenger badly needed some update.
Facebook Chat Messenger New Update
Now Facebook chat messenger has got an important update. From now on there is no need for you to sign in with Facebook on browser to use this official Facebook desktop chat client. We covered the news about the official launch of Facebook chat messenger for Windows 7 few days back. That time it was quite annoying to use the app due to the browser sign in. Some of my friends even failed to login to the chat messenger even after sign in on the web. Now Facebook removed the restriction. You can easily sign in to the Facebook chat messenger without even open your browser. That means just like Google Talk you can access official Facebook Chat Messenger by directly sing in from within the messenger window.
In features, the app resembles and offers the ‘same’ Facebook chat experience. But features like video calling, go offline to specific friends etc. are still lacks in this official Facebook chat client. The app allows you to:
- Chat and message with your friends on Facebook
- See the latest updates from your friends in ticker
- Get quick notifications about what’s going on
- See friend requests
- Read messages
If you haven’t already downloaded the app, below is the download link. For those who are using Facebook chat messenger already, instead of right click on the taskbar icon to sign in, directly hit on the taskbar icon. To sign out you need to right click on the app task bar icon and choose log out. Dock Window to Right, chat sound etc. features can also be accessed by right clicking on the task bar icon.
