Decides to release the program after news leakage

When news of the App for Windows was leaked yesterday, it seems like the company decided to capitalise on the leak instead of crying over spilt milk. Apparently this was a test version Facebook began testing with a small group of people last month.

In addition to supporting Facebook chat, the App will allow users to check notifications, friends requests and the ubiquitous news ticker which will be positioned on top of the contacts list. While we haven’t yet heard an official announcement on release regarding the App from Facebook, a version is available here.

The Facebook Messenger app is only for Windows machines at the moment, so if you’re running Linux or a Mac, you will have to wait for a release for your platform. New features such as group chat, video calling, limiting chat availability and more will be featured in upcoming versions.
