Facebook Messenger lands big Android UI update

Facebook on Thursday posted a tangible update to Facebook Messenger on Android (Google Play). The new app significantly speeds up starting a conversation with individuals or groups, needing just a tap of the + button and the contact or the group option to get started. Android 4.0 owners also get better support, although what's changed isn't conspicuous in a brief test.

The overall look of the app has been updated in the same breadth. General bug fixes are also in place, Facebook said.

Using Messenger demands Android 2.2 or newer. Although it will run on any screen, the app remains optimized for phones and stretches out on tablets. iPhone users already had the interface updates as of March 19.
