Facebook Messenger app review
Facebook Messenger for Android offers many alluring features that make the users engrossed in it. Audio clips, images, videos and customized large emojis can be sent through the messenger. There is also a feature that allows the users to send money via the service it offers. This app has enormous stickers that appear in the forms of cute, tiny, and high-quality images. If you download the app only to experience the hyped fun, rather than the messaging core feature, you can make use of the VoIP calls or video chat features. The voice call feature allows us to have the conversation in a group.
Furthermore, Facebook has put privacy as the main concerns. That is why the developers created Secret Conversation mode in order to respect the privacy of its users. You can set the mode from the setting and choose one phone to be the default. This feature is called secret conversation as it is encrypted end-to-end. That is to mean, the users can only read on the device they have chosen to send and receive the messages. Either Facebook or legitimate authorities are not able to the messages. Secret modes are activated by being encrypted using the open-source signal protocol. This is what make the messages can only be read by the recipients when using the secret conversation mood.
In the normal mode of messaging, it is encrypted to prevent the interception with the encryption keys. This feature is also available on Whatsapp app that is also developed by Facebook. With that said, the messages can still be read by Facebook or legitimate authorities with a court order. Here are the pros and cons of this app.
- It is a free app.
- Your privacy is safe.
- Fun app.
- There are too many trivial additional built-in apps.
