More need a Facebook account to use Messenger

Facebook has begun deploying a new update of its Messenger application, which allows use without connecting to a social network account.

Facebook continues to add to its Messenger instant messaging service to open to more users. In some countries – USA, Canada, Venezuela and Peru to time – it is now possible to use the application without having to connect to a Facebook account.

In this situation, the application is based on the user’s phone number to make it available through his contacts that have done the same. The approach still requires some information, such as adding the name and a photo, to facilitate communication.

From there, all the features of Messenger become available, such as group chat, video calls or sharing photos, to name a few.

This new option should be extended subsequently in many other countries. The purpose of Facebook is obviously to develop as much as possible the use of its service, which now attracts about 700 million active users each month, until then all necessarily registered on the social network.
