Just in time for when everyone is working from home, but not quite just in time as now Zoom has taken over but Facebook has launched a dedicated app for Windows and macOS for Messenger, so you can now use the chat and video functionality of the Messenger platform, without having to use the web version.

“Today we’re launching a Messenger app for MacOS and Windows so you can video chat on your computer and stay connected with friends and family all over the world.”


The app supports Dark Mode, like mosts apps on macOS lately and comes at a time where video calling is prevalent. Messenger is very unlikely to be use for work environments, this is where Microsoft Teams and Zoom have been used. But this is a welcome addition for those who use Messenger.
