Facebook on Thursday launched a Messenger app for MacOS and Windows so one can video chat on their desktop and stay connected with friends and family all over the world.

The advantage of having the Messenger app on desktop is that it allows one to make group video calls on a larger screen.

And what is more, the chats sync across mobile and desktop so you will never miss a call or a message no matter what device you are using.

“Over the past month, we saw more than a 100 per cent increase in people using their desktop browser for audio and video calling on Messenger,” Stan Chudnovsky, Facebook’s VP of Messenger, said in a blog post.
