Enjoy Facebook Messenger directly from your browser. Easily send and receive messages while you are in Google Chrome rather than only on your mobile device. Rather than clicking on “send” manually, you can now use Enter to send your messages. The app comes in a variety of languages and is synced to your Facebook account, so it will use whichever one you have associated with Facebook as the default. Users also have access to the Facebook Mobile View extension, which some may consider preferable to chatting within the Facebook site.
Facebook Messenger also includes a desktop notification feature that lets you know when you have received a new message. There is also a counter so that you can keep track of how many new messages that you have received. In order for these features to function properly, you must make sure that you are logged into Facebook. The app also comes with sound notifications so that you can get audio cues as well as visual ones when you receive a new message. If you would prefer not to hear the sounds, you can easily disable this feature, as well as make other adjustments to suit your personal preferences, on the options page.
