Facebook launches desktop version for Messenger as video calls surge

Facebook Inc rolled out the desktop version of the Messenger app for Apple & # 39; s Mac and Microsoft Windows on Thursday to make video chats available on computer screens for Facebook users. The move is because video conferencing apps like Zoom have skyrocketed, with offices, school districts, organizations, and millions around the world working from home after the block was imposed to slow down the spread of the corona virus.

Facebook announced the plan desktop version last year and unveiled steps to transform itself into a private messaging company. Thursday’s social network noted that it saw a jump of more than 100% in the past month in people using their desktop browsers for audio and video calling on Messenger.
