Facebook is launching Messenger apps for Windows and MacOS globally from today, nearly a year after the social networking giant first announced plans to bring dedicated apps to the desktop.
A Facebook Messenger app has been available for Windows users for a while, though it has largely been neglected, and a web version has been around for several years.
With the new Messenger desktop app, users can make video calls on much larger screens, which will certainly improve one-to-one communications.
However, the bigger benefit will likely be for group video calls, as multiple friends can look cluttered on a smaller smartphone screen.
In the immediate aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak, Facebook reported a 70% surge in people participating in Messenger group video calls, while the amount of time spent on those group video calls doubled — and these numbers have been rising sharply.
