Facebook Attempts To Revamp Messenger Features

Selfie stickers and vanish mode to be launched soon

Facebook on Tuesday introduced a brand new look for Messenger, including a new logo and default chat color as well as new chat themes, like love and tie-dye, and custom reactions.

The company has also announced features like selfie stickers and vanish mode, which is coming soon.

“With over a billion users around the world, our mission is to be a universal way to connect and be closer together. That mission has never been more important as people everywhere look to private online spaces to stay connected,” said Stan Chudnovsky, VP of Messenger.

Messenger recently announced cross-app communication with Instagram which will be rolled out to most users in North America soon.

“Messenger features also powers conversations within Portal, and soon Oculus, so you can be with your favorite people wherever you are,” Chudnovsky added.

Along with the new logo and default chat color, Messenger also rolled out new chat themes, like love and tie-dye, and custom reactions.
