Since it came into being, Facebook Messenger has, for sure, come a long way.
This application was initially part of the main Facebook app; however, in April 2014; Facebook announced that all the users of this social networking site must download the Messenger app for instant messaging or rather chatting services.
Today, less than four years since the app began operations, Facebook Messenger is one of the most used applications across the globe. Just recently, Facebook bolstered this app by including a new ability where it allows third party apps. In this line, Messenger created a list of its own dedicated apps that can run within the application.
