Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has released an update to its iOS Messenger app. The new app brings to table a new option of swipe to delete conversations from the Inbox, and also comes with the addition of stickers.
For those who’re not familiar with stickers, then they’re in a simple sense – emoticons that users can add in the messages to add smile, sad, laughs and other emotions. The social network will be adding stickers to its iOS Messenger app in the next few weeks, so don’t worry if you’re not able to see it right now. But if you’re on Android then fear not, you already have this feature which you can start using right now.
For now, Facebook’s stickers are free, but it won’t be surprising if Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) starts charging for certain packs of stickers. This update means users can now express more emotions in textual communications, freeing themselves to write everything that they want to express. After all, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
To use stickers, users can tap on the smiley icon in the Messenger text box which will pull out a bunch of stickers. Users can then tap on the sticker of their choice to insert it in the conversation.
Another update to the Facebook Messenger app for iOS is the ability to delete conversations by a swipe. Users just need to swipe on the screen to delete a conversation that they don’t need anymore. In the end, it just saves a few steps required to delete the message, and thus saves time.
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can grab the latest version of Facebook Messenger from the below link. Don’t forget to let us know your thoughts on these new stickers offering from the social network. Is it a yay or nay?
