Facebook Messenger for Android introduces multi-account feature
Weeks after introducing multi-account support for Instagram, Facebook is now bringing the same feature to its main messaging app, the Messenger.
While multiple account support for Messenger is not exactly as useful as with Instagram, it’s a welcome feature for those who have shared devices like a home tablet. Also, if we’re to base on the screenshots above, the app will also sport Google’s Material Design for Android.
The refreshed app should come to your Android devices in the coming days and once your app gets the update, just head over to the settings tab and looks for ‘Accounts’. From here, you can add each Facebook account you that will use the app without the need to log them in from the main Facebook app.
Obviously, the update is heading for Android only for now. Windows Phone and iOS counterparts are yet to receive the feature.
