Video: Facebook Messenger vs Snapchat
Last updated: April 03, 2018
Facebook Messenger is an instant messaging service and software application which provides text and voice communication. Available now for Android and iPhone. Secure Facebook Messenger alternatives are Signal and Telegram. If you are looking for Facebook Messenger alternatives for business pay attention to GoToMeeting, Skype for Business.
Snapchat is a photo messaging application. Using the application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients.
Face to face in the news:
2015 - Facebook launched dedicated web interface for its Messenger to defeate Snapchat
Facebook has launched Messenger.com - a dedicated chat interface for Facebook Messenger. You can still send messages from Facebook.com as always, but Messenger.com could become a favorite of busy users concerned with productivity, or those that use Facebook to chat with friends but don’t like the social content chaos of its main site. The Messenger site features a list of your threads on the left, with a big, clean, white chat window on the right. You can use most of the mobile app’s features from here, including audio and video calls, stickers, and photos. For now it lacks the ability to record and send audio messages, instantly send a photo from your web cam, or use the new Messenger platform content sharing apps. But just like splitting Messenger’s app off from Facebook on mobile, doing the same on the web could give the company more room to pack in bonus features that differentiate it from SMS and other chat apps.
