Facebook Messenger

1. use of the app

Who doesn't know it? The Facebook Messenger. Anyone with a Facebook account can make use of its features. And stay in constant contact with his friends. So the user is always up to date and can share news with friends and family in a flash and for free. Whether as a photo, video or normal text message. Facebook Messenger has been offering this free service for mobile devices - both iOS and Android - since 2011. About 8 years after the founding of the social network for web browsers on the desktop PC.

In Facebook Messenger, more and more features were added over time. For example, the Messenger app for iOS displays those contacts who are currently online. In addition, the Facebook Messenger app for iOS regularly synchronizes with the desktop version. Thus, the latest chats are also displayed.

In 2014, the iOS version of the Facebook Messenger app was finally equipped with the option to make free phone calls. This was to be made possible via the so-called IP telephony. Likewise, it was supplemented by video telephony. This means that the app can also be used for video conferencing and is thus no longer only interesting for private individuals.

Companies also benefit from this function. For some time now, users have been able to contact a company's customer support via chats with Facebook Messenger. They can now clarify their concerns in writing without having to wait on hold in the phone line. Furthermore, companies now also use this channel to submit offers to potential customers.

2. most important functions

Facebook Messenger offers a variety of useful features to stay in touch with friends, acquaintances and companies. It can easily write messages for this and receive them. He expresses emotions with a wealth of emoticons, GIFs and emojis. This way, he can show if he's doing well, if he's sad, or if he's looking forward to something and what he's up to.

What else can the user do with Facebook Messenger? Messages don't have to be just writing, emojis, emoticons or GIFs. Messenger, like many other messenger services, also has the function of sending photos. Maybe the photos from a party, vacation, transcripts from school or university and much more. Don't feel like typing? Then video chat is just the thing. You can also send recorded videos of current experiences or discoveries from the Internet. Or simply send a link to show the contact something directly. So what the user sends is almost unlimited.

Even files, such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets or PDF files can be sent without any problems. And finally, as a further aid, one can send the location. Ideal for a planned meeting, for example, if you do not immediately recognize and find each other in a big city.

In addition to the functions already mentioned, Facebook Messenger in the USA also offers the option of sending money. This is currently not yet the case in Germany.

3. rating

In principle, you have a small computer here. With this, the user is more versatile and flexible. Appointments and arrangements can be easily clarified by text or video message. And the interlocutors have the option to send their location on top of that. Within seconds, they can let their contact know where they are. Making appointments is therefore very easy. No matter where you meet, where you are or where a certain place is. This app is certainly practical. But what about the battery consumption?

  • GPS must be activated on the phone to determine the location.
  • For video chats, the camera is needed - and it needs a lot more battery power for high-resolution pictures.

For short messages or appointments via video, however, it should basically not have a big impact on battery power. Agreements can sometimes be made faster with this function than with the back and forth of text messages.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
