On Monday Facebook said that if users want to chat on Facebook they’ll have to do it through the standalone Facebook messenger app. Facebook first released messenger in selected European countries in April but since then it has spread throughout the world. Now, when users try to send a message using the Facebook app they will be prompted to download messenger if they haven’t already installed. According to Facebook currently 200 million people use their messenger app every month. Facebook also said that messenger is much faster than the Facebook app about 20% faster. The Facebook messenger app is currently available for both android, iOS and even windows phone.
