Facebook’s chat application, Messenger announced the future of brand new features.
F8 Developer Conference, the technology giant company today, announced many innovations about the company’s platforms. One of the most interesting innovations is the new features that will be added to Facebook Messenger.
Facebook, the chat application announced that the Messenger will keep the privacy at the forefront. In this context, conversations in Messenger will be protected by end-to-end encryption, as in WhatsApp. End-to-end encryption technology encrypts data flow between users and prevents data reading by 3rd parties.
End-to-end encryption technology, Facebook, not only correspondence but also video calls, shared location information and brings many more data. This feature, which has long been expected to be brought by Facebook, will help the company cut its reputation for privacy-related issues in the past.
In addition to privacy enhancements, the Messenger application is much more user-friendly. Facebook, which renews the application’s codes from the beginning, reduces the size of the Messenger application to only 30 MB. The Messenger application, which now opens much faster, runs faster than before and extends battery life.
Facebook’s main plan is said to make Messenger the fastest communication application in the world. The Silicon Valley giant company, which is trying to make the application lightweight and functional enough for any device to operate easily, also announced that the application will release Windows and macOS versions in the autumn of 2019.
