Facebook may have killed Windows support for its Messenger app, but it has released a Windows Phone version today which is available for download now.

The Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone features the usual bells and whistles available on iOS and Android platforms, including stickers. You can also send photos privately, as well as have group conversations and share your location so people know where exactly you are.

Facebook-WindowsPhone

We noted before that it seems Microsoft can only keep Facebook in one of its platforms at a time. The company is attempting to merge the Windows and Windows Phone stores, but that’s still a long way off. Facebook Messenger for Windows was released in March 2012, following a limited beta test in November 2011.
