Those of you using the Facebook Messenger on Windows probably got the same message as myself this morning. According to the notification, the Messenger will stop working on Monday, March 3.

There is no explanation why Facebook decided to kill its standalone messenger app, but it isn’t unexpected.


The Facebook Messenger installer for Windows has disappeared completely from Facebook’s website a while ago. Even its Help articles on the website were hard to find, so it was clear back then Facebook will be dropping support for the tool in the future.


Well, it is time. The app will stop working on March 3. The help section is available now and explains how to uninstall the Messenger off your PC.


As a user who really got used to the app, I am quite disappointed. I guess my only option now is to rely on the dedicated Metro/Modern Facebook app. Bugger!

WhatsApp for PC? I doubt it.

I dont mean WhatsApp for PC, I mean maybe they want to focus on WhatsApp Messenger, Sometimes integrating it with FB, Well who cares, we still live to see whatever happens...

do you know that you can run Whatsapp today on your PC, I have been using it since 1 year however you need the client to run it and it would sync with your mobile without the need of any cables to your PC therefore I do beleive it is becoming official now on your desktop

No mjall, The WhatsApp you run on PC doesnt mean its already available and official if i may put it that way. As you mentioned earlier on, you stated that you run it on a client environment meaning its not a standalone app, the same way it applies to all Android apps. Its just a way of running Android apps on your PC. Maybe they might consider bringing it on to the desktop as a standalone app (as Viber as already done). But Well live to see and too early to decide.
