Not just for Facebook friends: Message people in your phone book and just enter a phone number to add a new contact.

Group chats: Create groups for the people you message most. Name them, set group photos and keep them all in one place.

Photos and videos: Shoot videos and snap selfies or other photos right from the app and send them with one tap.

Free calls: Talk as long as you want, even with people in other countries. (Calls are free over Wi-Fi. Otherwise, standard data charges apply.)

Even more ways to message:
Bring your conversations to life with stickers.
Preview your camera roll photos and videos without leaving the conversation--then choose the perfect ones to send.
Record voice messages when you have more to say.

Extra features:
Know when people have seen your messages.
Forward messages or photos to people who weren't in the conversation.
Search for people and groups to quickly get back to them.

Clean, simple design and easy chatting with friends

There are plenty of messaging apps that claim to save you money by taking over the functions usually supplied by your wireless carrier. Cancel your SMS and voice plans, they claim, and use Wi-Fi and cellular data instead! Facebook is a front-runner in this pack simply by virtue of its good design, useful features, and large user base. There's also the added benefit of not having to create yet another new account.

I've been living with Facebook Messenger for a while now, and I really enjoy the experience. But it needs a few more features like live video chat.

Facebook Messenger is still the best way to chat with Facebook friends—which makes it essential for those who chat a lot. The new Chat Heads feature that is rolling won’t be as integrated as it is for Android users, but it will make things easier for those who use the standalone Facebook app since it will basically float on the main Facebook window while users check out their news feed. For those who frequently makes plans with groups of friends or anyone who just wishes to avoid wasting time reading status updates, Facebook Messenger is the best route to go for now. I can’t wait to see what Facebook has in store for the future of Facebook Messenger.

Quite simple in nature yet boasts interesting features
