5 things you should know about Facebook's redesigned messenger app



Facebook first announced the redesigned Messenger 4 in October with the update appearing briefly in early December before quickly vanishing from users' devices. Then Facebook finally released the new Messenger design in January .

There's a lot of white space, fewer icons and buttons. It's kind of confusing to use.

Three tabs

Less is more, or so Facebook says. Instead of a bunch of tabs along the bottom of the app, there are now three: Chats, People and Discover.

Chats is where you can view contacts' Stories and access recent conversations. The People tab shows you who is active and provides a more prominent preview of their latest Facebook Stories. The Discovery tab is where you can find local work to message, play games and interact with other Facebook pages.

You have been able to customize the color of your Facebook Messenger chats for a while now, but in Messenger 4, there are now gradient color options.

With one of the colors selected, you are in a chat to go from one color to another.

To change the assigned color of a chat, tap on the person's name or group chat's name at the top of the screen and then select Color on the settings page.

Conversation controls

Swipe either direction across a conversation in the Chats tab to access quick actions. For example, a swipe to the left will give you a menu button, a mute button and a delete button. A swipe in the opposite direction provides the option to launch the camera and start a voice or video call.

Chat features have moved

According to Facebook's announcement in October, the company knew the redesign would take some getting used to, so in the future it will add more features, such as a dark mode. When those features are released, we'll update this post.
