Till recently, Facebook Messenger could only be accessed via a web browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. If you’re using a PC, there was no alternative way to utilize Facebook Messenger without using a browser.
This has resulted in a situation where individuals must have their browsers open in order to use Facebook Messenger. Most PCs have always found it difficult to keep a browser open since they are renowned for using a lot of RAM and CPU resources. It’s even more difficult when you’re trying to do anything else at the same time (like playing a game while keeping chrome running, you will surely have lots of lags).
As a result, Facebook has introduced a standalone Facebook Messenger App for Windows 10 64-bit and 32-bit PC users to address these difficulties. Because the new program consumes so little resources on your computer, you may leave it running in the background for as long as you like without causing slowness in your games or other applications.
