If you are big into chatting with your friends over an instant messaging service, but prefer the non-textual aspect of things, this new Facebook Messenger update will please you. The update to version 5.0 of the app includes a new selfie mode built right in, video upload support, and much more.

To access stickers, simply hit the smiley face next to the location setting icon and you will see them pop up. If you hit the little shopping basket, you will also be taken to a store where you can get even more stickers. They are listed as free, so I’m guessing there will be an option to buy paid sticker packs in the future. How very uninteresting. (more…)
The past couple weeks have been pretty big for Facebook, first launching Chat Heads and following it up with Home. To make sure that you never leave Facebook’s applications, they have upgraded their Messenger app again today to include free VoIP calling for people in the US. If you need to get ahold of someone on your Facebook friends list, this feature is live in your Messenger app right now. (more…)
