Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone 8.1 updated with video recording support and more


The official Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone 8.1 has been updated with the ability to record and send videos as chat messages. The stickers section of the app has also got an improvement.


The app will now let you record and send the videos to your Facebook friends right from within the app without the need to leave the chat message and messenger. Previously, we could only send photos after capturing them or picking them from Photos hub.


The Facebook Messenger app has the following change log:

  • Record and send videos as messages
  • You can now select recently sent stickers from the recent stickers section
  • Your favorite stickers are now organized separately
  • Other improvements and enhancements

Now, you just have to hold onto the camera icon in send photo option and the video will start recording or you can pick any video file from with the photos app.

The app is now available for download from Windows Phone Store and will be downloaded automatically. Go grab the update to start sending videos to your Facebook friends!
