Messenger is finally taking its new design to a larger group of users. The update of the application was revealed by Facebook in May 2018 and began to be made available in October, with some slowness.
According to the Messenger team, the new look has not yet been released for everyone, but that should happen in a short time. The platform has already updated its screenshots in the Play Store and the App Store to highlight the change.
The purpose of Messenger 4, as the service version was called, is to rescue a simple interface with a focus on the conversations. The application has reduced the number of tabs from nine to three: Chats, People, and Discover.
The camera icon has moved to the top of the screen and was paired with the option to create a new conversation. The application also allows you to choose from four gradient options for the message balloons, which change color as you move the scroll bar.
Reviewing the Messenger interface does not affect old features like polls, location sharing, games, and video chat. All are still present in the application.
“We believe that Messenger 4 brings the closeness and authenticity that people have been asking – through the simplicity of design and features that focus on messaging and connection,” Facebook said in October, announcing the new service.
