Facebook Messenger app for Windows 10 could be coming soon

Facebook-messenger
A native Facebook Messenger app for Windows 10 is likely on its way.

On Thursday, a beta version of the app appeared on Microsoft's Windows app store. The universal Windows app works on PCs and tablets running Microsoft's newest operating system. It doesn't work for Windows 10 mobile devices (yet), so "universal" is a bit of stretch at this point, but it is a beta.

The app's features and layout are mostly similar to the experience you get through a web browser on Messenger.com. However, as a native app, it has live tile support and notifications.The beta app is currently only available to a select number of users. Facebook told VentureBeat, "We're testing Messenger for Windows 10 to a small percentage of people in a few countries" and that it "doesn't have any additional details to share at this time."

Facebook is also reportedly testing a Messenger app for Mac. Like the Windows 10 app, it's unclear when Facebook will release the apps. It's possible the social network could announce them at its F8 developer conference in April.
