Facebook Messenger Gets New Inbox and Birthday Reminders

The interface of the Facebook Messenger app has been improved.

Facebook announced today an update to the Facebook Messenger app. 900 million users have to adapt to these new changes. Facebook's UX team needs to be very careful every time they change something in the Facebook Messenger app. It impacts almost a billion people.

The inbox is where Facebook made the biggest changes. You still see the first few most recent messages at the top of your screen, followed by a new Favorites section, which highlights people you message most frequently, so you can quickly pick up your last conversation. 

In the Active Now section, you can see that a good friend or colleague is available in the moment. Maybe that will prompt you to make contact.

Facebook is also adding helpful reminders like people‚Äôs birthdays so you can wish them a happy day. This has been a feature in Skype since an eternity. 

The new version of Facebook Messenger is expected to be released soon. Right now the Facebook Messenger version 75, released on June 15, is the latest version on iTunes.
