Even though Messenger was launched almost 4 years ago, many Facebook users still aren’t using the app to converse with their friends. Instead, they are very happy to keep on using the messaging function within the Facebook app itself.
Well, this is about to end. Facebook is removing the messaging capability from its mobile apps.
If you’re not using Messenger yet, it is very likely that you will soon come across a notification on your mobile apps that says
[quote]Your conversations are moving to Messenger. Soon you’ll only be able to view your messages from Messenger.”[/quote]

Facebook made it clear a long time ago that it would make users switch to its dedicated messaging app. So, every time we message a Facebook friend who isn’t on Messenger, we are reminded to invite them to use it.
Well, it seems like the company is now about to force everyone into switching. I understand how this might be perceived as wrong by many, but I believe Facebook is right in doing so. Messenger has received so many cool updates over the past few months, so it really has become one of the best messaging apps out there, in my opinion.
If you look at what the future of Messenger looks like, I’m sure you’ll agree – click here to see the animated version.
So, what’s it going to be? Will you switch voluntarily now, or wait for Facebook to force you?
