Facebook Messenger for Android has been updated to version 1.7 with a changelog that includes new location features and the ability to see when your messages have been read by their recipient. The “What’s new” section on the app’s Google Play page has been updated accordingly, though it reads more as an add promoting messenger as alternative to using the texting plan you already pay for. And that’s about all you can expect. Pro tip: location tracking is turned on by default when installing the latest update. It can be disabled via the app’s settings menu.
