Facebook is starting to roll out its native Messenger app for Mac in Australia, France, Mexico, and Poland.
At F8 last year, Facebook announced it was working on desktop versions of Messenger, but we heard no news about this until just this week. Messenger for Mac is starting to roll out on the Apple App Store in some markets, but according to TechCrunch Facebook says this is not a full launch of the app.
“We’re conducting a small test of the Messenger app for macOS in a couple of markets,” explained a company spokesperson. “We don’t have a date when it will be available as we’re still gathering feedback from our users.”
Messenger for macOS has been confirmed as available in Australia, France, Mexico, and Poland, and offers most of the same features as the mobile version – even dark mode.
The news comes only days after Facebook started rolling out a “faster, smaller, and simpler” Messenger app on iOS, as promised at last year’s F8. However, this year’s F8 has unfortunately been canceled due to coronavirus fears.
