Windows Phone follows iOS, Android in offering Facebook Messenger
Facebook has rolled out its Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone, making it available to download via the Windows Phone Store today. Just as with the Android and iOS versions of the app, Facebook Messenger offers group conversations, stickers, the option to send photographs to other users, location sharing, and to see when other users have read the message, though it lacks the voice calling and "Chat Head" functions of the other platforms.
