the graphical interface with the latest update that underwent a real restyling. In all fairness, today it is clearer, more linear and above all no longer dominated by the blue color, excessively bulky in the past. Like all instant messaging applications, Facebook Messenger on Android lets you know when your contacts are online. The invitation to send to your friends who are not yet using this service follows the traditional rules. Facebook Messenger offers you the opportunity to chat with your contacts, to add group conversations on the home screen, to share your geographical position, to send voice messages, images and stickers. If you deem it appropriate, with this mobile instant messaging application, you can also make international calls to your contacts who use the service. Of course at no cost.

Among the main advantages of Facebook Messenger on Android there is also the possibility to continue the chat even when using other applications: all this due to the presence of pop-ups, called Chat Heads, which continue to remain open even after the application is closed.

It is serious that an application of the site in blue does not allow you to do the logout due to the lack of a button ad hoc. To disconnect from the app, you must necessarily do so from the Facebook application.

Without invitation.

All the functions of WhatsApp, then, do not depend on other services at all, as in the case of Facebook Messenger. After that, the individual chat is group, sharing photos, movies, voice messages, managing the privacy (it is possible to hide the time of the last connection, the profile photo and the status) and the sending of your geographical position make the use of Whatsapp unique.

The disadvantages are identifiable only by those looking for an instant messaging application with more evasive functions, such as those present on Wechat. With Whatsapp, then, it is not possible to have fun with video games, make voice calls, invite contacts for a hangout, send stickers.
