Facebook Messenger getting an update with improved support for group chats

Facebook Messenger

The Facebook Messenger app for Android is now getting an update with some bug fixes and other features in tow. One of the core features that have been touched upon with this update is group chats. Users can now start a dedicated group chat, add people, give the conversation a specific name and do a whole lot more.

With an increasing number of users relying on Facebook messaging to keep in touch with their friends and loved ones, this update is quite crucial. Surely it won’t replace your conventional group text applications, but Facebook is taking it one step at a time with Messenger.

This update also brings the ability to mute group conversations so that you’re not notified of a message when only a selected few in the group are having a conversation that you’re not interested in. And if you have multiple group conversations lined up, you can choose to conveniently pin them in dedicated tabs so that you can find them later with relative ease.

The update should start seeding to all users over the coming days if it hasn’t already, so remain patient.
