Three years after it was released for the iPhone, Facebook has finally brought its Messenger app to the iPad. Like most messaging apps for the iPad, Facebook Messenger features a sidebar of conversation threads with a chat window to the right.
Like the iPhone app, Messenger on the iPad will let you make voice calls to friends over a WiFi or cellular connection. Another voice-related feature lets you send quick snippets of audio to friends by tapping the mic icon in a chat window.
You can send a picture from the new iPad app, but the ability to send video is not included. Facebook Messenger on the iPhone has been able to send 15-second video clips since earlier this year.
There are over 200 million Messenger users, according to TechCrunch. That’s a huge number, and Facebook is clearly wanting the app to be a one-stop shop for your messaging needs—whether that means text, audio, pictures, or video.
