Facebook has remained silent for the entire redesign thing of their website after the event. But little by little, they are coming out in the daylight. A recent report suggests that Facebook is updating its Messenger For Desktop app with a new design.
The entire app is based on the ElectronJS framework. Which is a JS framework to write Windows Softwares using Web technologies. The changelog looks a long one though. The changelog includes:
- Ability to permanently delete sent messages
- Introduction of new themes (dark theme, grey theme)
- Ability to send files
- Full-screen mode
- Ability to hide chats
- New icon
- Updated emoticons
Here is the working sample of the app from Alumia.
However, the app isn’t available for general users. It may be possible that Facebook releases a Beta version for the Messenger for Desktop shortly.
