Hohoe (V/R), Oct. 25, GNA – Facebook has
unveiled a redesigned “Facebook Messenger” that attempts to simplify
the user interface for its 1.3 billion monthly active users.

A report copied to the Ghana News Agency said
the social network began rolling out a redesigned version featuring three tabs
instead of nine, saying it was “going back to its roots” seven years after the
stand-alone app’s launch.

Stan Chudnovsky, Messenger Chief, said “we
build one feature after another; they’re piling up.”

He said the service has grown from a simple
messaging app to one that lets users make video calls, send money and more.

The updated tabs allow users to navigate
between their conversations under “Chats,” stories and contacts at “People,”
and “Discovery,” which is devoted to games and exchanges with businesses.

Facebook has positioned Messenger as a tool
for businesses to efficiently handle customer questions or concerns.

It said talking to customers via the app is
free but businesses can also pay for Facebook adverts that let customers start
a conversation or visit their page with one click.

Messenger is part of Facebook’s effort to
expand outside the social network, particularly, when it comes to staying
relevant to mobile lifestyles and younger people, who have been moving away
from the service.
