The Facebook Messenger app on Android is getting an update starting today which brings along support for Android Wear smartwatches. This essentially means that users can finally view their Facebook messages right within their smartwatch and even compose replies with voice typing. The update comes a couple of days after WhatsApp introduced support for Android Wear with a beta update.
In addition to replying to incoming messages, users of Facebook Messenger will be able to mute or like these conversations directly from the smartwatch, so functionality is not just limited to the fundamentals of messaging. All these features should be on board the latest update to Facebook Messenger, although there’s no specific mention of it on the changelog yet. If you own a LG G Watch or a Samsung Gear Live, make sure you download the latest Facebook Messenger update from the link below and see how it’s working for you.
