Today Facebook Messenger app has just got a new update bringing it to version 2.4 and it is available for download for iPhone/iPad and iPod Touch, this new update brings the popular Stickers feature that was rolled out nearly a month ago in the major Facebook iOS client update. And if Stickers are getting on your nerves, perhaps the reappearance of the swipe-to-delete functionality is just what you needed all along? I’ve included a few more tidbits right below…
With this new update you will be able to quickly delete inbox messages by swiping – thank you, Gods of Facebook, for that!
Facebook showed off Stickers alongside Chat Heads at its Home media event on April 4, 2013. As you can see in the screenies top of post, to add Stickers to your messages, just tap the smiley icon in the text entry field.
Some Stickers are free and others – you guessed right – are purchasable in the in-built Sticker Store revealed upon tapping the basket icon.
Here is your changelog for Facebook Messenger version 2.4.
