Facebook Messenger

Facebook's instant messaging service, which is available on the Facebook website and as an app for mobile devices. Introduced in 2011, and initially bundled into the Facebook mobile apps, instant messaging was separated into the stand-alone Messenger app in 2014. In addition, iPhone and Android users can use Messenger as their primary text messaging client (SMS) and not have to switch between apps for messages from non-Messenger users.

As of 2019, Facebook Messenger and Facebook's WhatsApp instant messaging exist as separate services, each with more than a billion users. See WhatsApp Messenger, Facebook M and Facebook.
