Facebook tests Messenger App for macOS before the global launch

At its 2019 F8 developer conference, Facebook announced that it had planned to bring official Messenger desktop applications for both Mac & Windows users. And now, according to recent news, the Mac version of the app has started rolling out in France. It was first discovered by a French publication known as MacGeneration.

Now, it turns out that the Messenger desktop app arrived in Australia, Mexico, and Poland as well. Reports suggest that Facebook has released its desktop app in the aforesaid regions in order to test it and collect user feedback.

A Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch that “We’re conducting a small test of the Messenger app for macOS in a couple of markets. We don’t have a date when it will be available as we’re still gathering feedback from our users.”

This new Facebook Messenger desktop application will bring all the features that are already available on the iOS application. The big list of features also includes voice calls, video calls, group chats and video calls, emoji reacts, and file share support. Along with this, users will be happy to know that they will also get the latest released dark mode.

One of the noteworthy parts of the app is that it is built on Electron and not Apple’s Project Catalyst which means this app will get wider compatibility. As per reports, it is going to support macOS from its 10.10 (OS X Yosemite) version which was announced back in WWDC 2014.

It must be noted that the Facebook desktop app comes merely a few days after Facebook revamped its iOS Messenger app based on Project LightSpeed which promises to make the app at twice speed and that also consuming just one-fourth of its original size. As of now, we are not sure about the Messenger desktop app’s global rollout.
