STATES CHRONICLE – According to the latest news, Facebook will allow you to send SMS messages. Facebook Messenger users will be glad to find that the application will soon allow them to send text messages. At the moment, the social network is testing SMS incorporation in its Messenger app.
Moreover, Facebook announced the application will allow users to switch between multiple accounts. Three years ago, Facebook had enabled the SMS option in its Messenger app. However, it was later removed because not may customers used it. Now, the social network decided to bring the SMS support back.
With this option, users will see “Write SMS message” within the text input box when writing a message to someone. Instead of the normally blue color, sent messages would be displayed as purple bubbles. Moreover, the Messenger bubble and the user’s image in the conversation list is replaced with a purple one.
This new SMS feature will save users’ time as they will be allowed to reply to both Facebook messages and SMS texts using the same app. One social network’s spokesperson said:
‘At Messenger, we are always trying to create new ways for people to communicate seamlessly with everyone. Right now, we’re testing the ability for people to easily bring all their conversations — from SMS and Messenger — to one place.’
Facebook is also trying to update the application with multiple account support. The company announced this feature is already available on Android devices. Customers with two or more accounts will be permitted to switch between them without logging out over and over again.
Users can add their accounts from the Messenger application’s settings. Facebook has always tried to bring new options for its Messenger app. In 2015, it enabled new settings which included Uber service, personal assistant and allowed user to send money via Messenger. The social network continues to improve their strategies in order to gain more followers.
