Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is one of the world’s largest messaging platforms, and in late January we heard that Material Design would be coming to the Android app. It’s now early March, and the update delivering these changes is now rolling out via the Play Store.

Some of the details around the update have been published on Facebook HQ by David Marcus:

If you’re using Messenger on Android, you’ve been wanting a brand new material design for a bit. Any major redesign of an essential app used by hundreds of millions of people around the world is painstakingly hard, and that’s why we took every precaution to ensure you’d truly enjoy this evolution. This brand new design will be rolling out later today! As always, give it a try, and let us know what you think, and how we can make it even better for you!

It’s great to see Facebook finally embrace some Android-specific features and design. Now how about it in the main app, guys?

What app would you like to see undergo a Material makeover? Tell us in the comments!
