Facebook Is Forcing All Users To Download Messenger By Ripping Chat Out Of Its Main Apps
Facebook is taking its standalone app strategy to an extreme new level today. It's starting to notify users they'll no longer have the option to send and receive messages in Facebook for iOS and Android …


I don't see this going well.

People will definitely flip shit like they always do. But I never use the app messenger only the separate one. If anything, its annoying having notifications in both.

I use the messages on the main app. My girlfriend has awful service from her parents house so that's usually how we have to talk. This sucks.

I use the Messenger app as my main form of communication, even more so than texting, so it really doesn't bother me. I just don't see the point in forcing people to download the app, though I don't think there will be much of an outrage. People will probably just do it and move on.

I use the main app chat, but I don't see myself ever downloading or using the separate app. Dumb move.

Yeah, I've never seen the point of getting the messenger app. I want all of my Facebook-related stuff to be in one place on my phone.

This. I don't use Facebook or the chat much at all as is, but I certainly don't want two Facebook related apps on my phone.
