Mac OS X users can now delight in the clone Messenger App that was previously only available to users on mobile phones and browsers in other operating systems. While this app has no relations with Facebook in any way, it borrows largely from it and some features that users love in Facebook messenger has been integrated into it. In fact, Facebook Messenger for Mac simply pulled out the Messenger web app and converted it to a dedicated app. This enables the app to work independently of a browser.
Developed by an unofficial client, Aluxian, this application will let you enjoy Facebook’s messaging services on your Mac OS X desktop without being a member of that social network. Some of the options in the app that are similar to those on Facebook include video calling, stickers and chat.
Messenger for Desktop can run in the background as you continue with your other tasks. You simply minimize the app and you will be notified of any new messages. Many of the icons in the app are easy to identify for people who have used Facebook Messenger as they are very similar.
To better suit your needs, Messenger for Desktop has been designed to allow you to resize the chat window or chat in full screen. This option comes in handy when you need privacy or when chatting in a public or office set-up. The app is easy to use and does not hijack your computer’s memory.
The app gives you an option to import Facebook settings. This will automatically transfer all your details including your contacts from your Facebook; and will allow you to chat as though you were in that social platform while in reality, you’re not.
Messenger for Desktop-mac is free and open-source. This makes it fun to use since you can customize it to your liking and tweak the interface for fun. You can create a group and chat as though you were using other Instant Messaging Apps like WhatsApp.
With the Messenger for Desktop, you can record voice messages, shoot videos or take pictures and share them with your contacts. Even better, you can make HD calls from any location in the world for free. If you love extras to you chats like stickers, this app offers you a variety of those.
