Facebook Messenger is now available on Windows Phone and its Horrible

FB messengerYou heard that right.. The Official Facebook Messenger App is finally available on your Windows Phone device as reported by our Editor in Chief Lenny. Click Here for more details.

Facebook Messenger is no stranger to Windows Phone. Matter of fact is Facebook Messenger is one of the integrated featured service on Windows Phones OS. I can’t say its an awesome experience as I constantly get disconnected. (Just my experience FYI) Maybe a lot of users too as they once again revamped the Official Facebook app with a built in Chat “aka” Facebook Messenger. Its a decent app in my experience, even though now I get two notifications from the built FB Messenger and from the app itself. (The built in FB messenger on the OS can be turned off by the way.)

Still not satisfied..? How about we make a Facebook Messenger App.

Me thinking.. Hmmnnn.. Here is to hoping this App will be awesome than the one on iOS and Android.. Excited! Excited! Crossing my fingers.

The day has come.. FB Messenger App has officially arrived at the Store! Woohoo..

I installed the App on my Nokia Lumia 925.. Immediate reaction was Cool.. Looks decent and familiar.

Not until I started getting message notifications!! I was literally getting annoyed!! I was getting multiple notifications. I was getting notifications from the Built in FB messenger, the FB App, and the FB messenger App. What the hell!!? Had to turn off notifications on the FB App and turn off FB built in messenger.

More Rant about this App..

Ok.. What I like about Facebook Messenger on Desktop, Macs, and iOS is the ability to make voice calls to your FB friends.

So I was expecting it would be the same or even better on FB Messenger App for WP since it was late in the game.

Once again we got screwed over! The app does not even have the ability to do Facebook Audio Calls! So pathetic..

Also one more thing I didn’t like about the app was it does not give you an option to go back to the Facebook App. You have to literally close the app and reopen Facebook. If you click a name on the FB Messenger app it would open up the FB on your mobile browser.

Anyways.. That’s all for now.. What do you guys think of the FB Messenger App? Are you as disappointed as me?
