Facebook is rolling out message requests for its Messenger.
We all know that Facebook is constantly improving the functionality of all its services, in order to provide a better experience to the users, and message requests for Facebook Messenger is the latest improvement.
The Vice President of messaging products at Facebook, David Marcus shared the news in a Facebook post:
“We truly want to make Messenger the place where you can find and privately connect with anyone you need to reach, but only be reached by the people you want to communicate with,” said the Vice President of messaging products at Facebook, David Marcus in a Facebook post he shared.
If you want to talk to anyone, you can forget the phone numbers, because all you need is the person’s name. The company will now remove the “Other folder” which was accessible from the wen only. The users will be able to accept or ignore the requests, and the person that sent the message won’t even know if the user read their message or not.
“The rule is pretty simple: If you’re friends on Facebook, if you have each other’s contact info in your phone and have these synced, or if you have an existing open thread, the new messages from that sender will be routed to your inbox,” Marcus added.
He also said this is a foundational development even though it may seem like a small change. The company will continue to work on improvements that will allow the users to find the people they want to communicate with.
