Facebook Messenger is an official desktop client application of the world’s largest social network Facebook.com. This widely popular app was built to enable anyone of its large user base that counts more than billion people from all around the world easy access to live chat capabilities that can be accessed without loading your web browser. This is especially useful for people who like to multitask, but want to remain in contact with their friends, family, business, partners and clients, without having browser always loaded. By utilizing all the modern techniques that were popularized by other chat clients, Facebook Messenger enables users to easily maintain multiple chat connections and see the online status of anyone on their friendlist.
First release of Facebook Messenger for Windows Desktop happened in August of 2011, with final release being unveiled on March 5 2012. This version of the app enabled text chat and multiple window manipulation, but it also promised quick adoption of the more advanced features such as video calling in the future. Introduction of this feature sadly is still not yet implemented.

Icons and color scheme is evoking Facebook, with friendlist and chat window management being as easy as possible. You can even manage how you want to receive popup notifications about online status of your friends.
