Messenger is a mobile messaging application that allows you to reach people immediately on their phones. Messenger lets you send private messages and stickers to friends and family, chat with group members, and make free calls even to people from other countries.
To find friends, you can either use names or numbers. Messenger friends will be visible when you open Facebook.
If a friend read receipts and has read your message you’ll see ‘Read.’ This will be followed by the date your message was read. If you haven’t read the message yet, you’ll see “Sent.”
