Messenger is a text and video chat app developed by Facebook that has been installed on over one billion devices. It’s free and offers unlimited texting, voice calls, video chat and video calling, and group video chat. It’s an all-in-one communication tool that’s easy to navigate and good for personal or business use. Best of all, it connects to your Facebook account.

Add your debit or credit card and you can use Messenger to send and receive money securely from friends and business contacts. The app is compatible across all devices, so you can use it on your phone, your laptop, tablet, or desktop computer. You can also use the app to send files, photos and videos direct to a contact instead of posting them on your wall.

The newest version of Messenger has an expanded library of stickers and emojis and special “dark mode” option if you want to cut down on glare. As with any Facebook product, the app is updated regularly, so you can expect more to come in the near future.
