Home » Computers » Facebook offers desktop messenger

Facebook alerted me to download and install the Facebook Messenger for my desktop (Windows).

I checked the web and found out that the desktop messenger has been available since December 2011 when an installation file leaked on the net. But it was only last March 2012 when Facebook officially announce it.

Anyways, it looks like a mashup of Gtalk and Skype. I was hoping that you could already do Video calls here. However, Facebook said they’re still working on it.

You can chat and message with individual friends, see what’s going on in ticker and get quick notifications about Facebook activity in Messenger. Chatting with multiple friends, video calling, limiting chat availability and editing settings are not currently available through the app. You can still do these by going towww.facebook.com in your web browser.

Hmmm… for those who have already Skype, Gtalk, and Yahoo Messenger (YM) installed and running on their Laptops or PCs, will you still install another messenger? By the way, the latest version of YM already lets you chat with your FB friends.
