Again the social media giant has updated its messenger platform. It seems Facebook is experimenting with the UI Design and were not satisfied with their work so they rolled back the new Messenger 4 a while ago but now they plan to launch it again. So, they started rolling out a new, simplified version of Messenger: Messenger 4.
In a recent Messenger study, 7 out of 10 (71%) people told us simplicity is the top priority for them in a messaging app (1). So, Facebook teams believe that Messenger 4 will deliver the closeness and authenticity that you’ve been asking for — through simplicity of design and powerful features that put the focus back on messaging and connecting. I love it, we all love it, the simplicity in the redesign!
So if we talk about the current UI of the messenger, it feels that the Facebook team is following the Google Play store design i.e complete white and colorless design.
Below image will provide you a much better view of it.
The new UI has trimmed some of the features and elements which were unnecessary and of no use. Up until now, Messenger had nine tabs which made the interface feel very loaded and clutter. The updated messenger is rolling out on Android and iOS devices which is way much cleaner and sticking forward to become simple communication platform.
After experimenting with the light color interface the Facebook is also planning to launch the Dark mode messaging platform in some of the countries. Yet it is not clear which were the countries which will be included in this segment.
The dark mode of the facebook has created much hype among the social media users, also this simplified the UI redesign called Messenger 4 was showcased at Facebook’s F8 Annual developer conference in October 2018.
To sum up, the new UI is:
• Simple: Easier to Navigate
• Powerful: New Ways to Personalize Conversations
• Familiar: Keeps What You Know and Love
• Personal: Created With You in Mind
