Instant Messaging

Facebook Messenger for Windows 7 is an application that allows you to send messages instantly even without having to open Facebook itself. This social and communication tool is dedicated to making chat messaging easier and more convenient for its users. Having a straightforward messenger on your desktop screen will also surely boost your productivity. 

Strong and independent

There is no need for you to log in at the Facebook website in order to access Facebook Messenger for Windows 7. It is an independent app that aims simply to give its users quick and easy access to their messages. Compared to using messenger through its social media site, having a totally separate Facebook Messenger rids you of all unnecessary distractions that are not really required when talking to someone online. Having a very straightforward interface lets users easily locate a contact and connect with them either through chat, voice calls, or video calls. Facebook Messenger for Windows 7 also allows you to have a bigger screen and a better view, unlike the small and limited chat boxes that Facebook has in its website. It also saves you from scrolling down for ages in an attempt to find a specific contact because a wider screen means that it is able to put more of your contacts on display. Your friends are listed accordingly when you open this standalone app and you are just one click away from sending anyone a message. If you want to avoid scrolling altogether, a search bar is made available at the bottom of your screen where you can just enter the person’s name.

Everything within your reach

Facebook Messenger for Windows 7 is an app made for instant messaging but it also features other functions. To make sure you are still in the loop, the app makes it possible for you to see your notifications and real-time updates of what is going on in your Facebook’s timeline. New friend requests can also be checked in a separate tab. Facebook Messenger for Windows 7 makes everything simple and within your reach.
