Facebook Messenger gains recorded voice messages and more in new update

Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone has just been updated. Today's update isn't a major one, but does add some nice new features and general improvements. Ready for some emoticon support?

Facebook Messenger was last updated for Windows Phone in late July when it gained video sharing. Today's update places the app at version 6.0 in the Windows Phone Store, which is the same number it had with the last update. Once updated, you'll see the app version at 7.0.0 in the settings. We're guessing the discrepancy is just a Store error. Anyways...

Here's what's new in today's update:

  • Now you can record voice messages—one of our most requested features.
  • Send emoticons like smiley faces and more.
  • Other improvements, including some to help you save data

We're big fans of Facebook Messenger on Windows Phone. Download the update and let us know what you think of the two new features.
