Facebook is launching a Messenger app for MacOS and Windows so you can video chat on your computer.
Over the past month, Facebook says it saw more than a 100% increase in people using their desktop browser for audio and video calling on Messenger. Now with apps for MacOS and Windows, Messenger is coming to desktop, including unlimited and free group video calls.
Here are some highlights:
- Group video calls on a larger screen.
- Easy to connect. You don’t need to know someone’s email or phone number since all your Facebook friends have Messenger.
- Multitasking. Your chats are easily accessible, and you can pop in and out of the app while doing other things on your computer.
- Notifications. You can receive notifications for new messages, so you can quickly find the chat you’re looking for. You can choose to mute and snooze notifications.
- Chats sync across mobile and desktop.
- Dark Mode and GIFs are included.
You can download the app today from the Microsoft Store or Mac App Store.
