Facebook recently released a new version of Messenger, but this time it’s for desktop exclusively. This new move is huge, as we’ve been noticing Facebook invest in new features that will keep brands and customers on their platform. This comes very soon after the announcement of peer-to-peer payments as a feature that users will experience through the Facebook Messenger application.
Facebook also announced that Messenger would upgrade its capabilities to become a communication tool between brands and customers. This is something the social network has not done in the past.
All these factors are in place to keep you on the platform for a longer period of time. With such a large market share, Facebook will likely remain king as long as it can implement features before users find solutions elsewhere.
What do you think? Do you prefer other peer-to-peer payment providers? Do you see yourself using Messenger on desktop?
