Facebook Messenger makes it easier find the people you want to talk to


Many messaging apps show you a long list of names in alphabetical order or a list of recent chats you’ve participated in. While that often suffices for most people (because we generally know who we want to talk to when we enter a messaging app) Facebook wants to make it even easier to get into a chat session.

Yes, we know this is an iPhone.

Today’s update to Facebook Messenger revamps the starting page when you first open the app. It’ll now show you up to 4 things:

  • Your few most recent conversations
  • A list of other people that you talk to frequently
  • A show of birthdays if anyone has one on that day or coming up
  • A list of people who are online and available

And if all of that somehow fails, you still have a trusty search box to back you up. The update is rolling out right now.
