At the F8 conference in 2019, the Facebook had announced that he had developed an application Messenger for desktops. A year later, and with the increase in demand for messaging applications due to coronavirus, the social network has now launched a Messenger application desktop for Windows and MacOS.
The announcement was made by Mr Stan Chudnovsky, his VP Messenger, who stated that the Facebook launches a PC application so you "can video chat on your PC and stay connected with friends and family around the world".
The new application Messenger desktop for Windows and MacOS includes everything in the browser version. That is, it includes group video calls (for up to eight people), notifications for new messages, support for Dark Mode, GIFs and synchronized chat on mobile and desktop computers.
It seems that the Facebook hastened its autonomous version Messenger Desktops due to increased demand in teleconferencing and communication applications. That is why the application came with the basic features that the corresponding web has through the browsers and without many additional goodies. After all, Messenger is not the only option available for those who want to keep in touch with their loved ones.
