Facebook Messenger Hits 5 Billion Downloads On Google Play Store


Facebook Messenger is a chat application that was created by Facebook, Inc. After its inception in 2008 as Facebook Chat, the site has evolved to become one of the most widely used messaging apps on the planet. It recently became the fourteenth app on Google Play Store to hit 5 billion downloads.

Through this, Facebook Messenger became the social network’s third platform to hit this landmark, after the Facebook app in 2019 and WhatsApp in early 2020. The fact that Facebook has attracted such a large number of users demonstrates how much people rely on it for contact.


Facebook has been working to expand its messaging empire, creating a cross-platform backend that will potentially enable all three of its messaging applications to communicate with one another. However, there is still much work to be done, especially in the area of privacy. Messenger does not yet support end-to-end encryption, and it will be some time before it does.

Even as users grow more concerned about their safety, this landmark acts as a warning that applications like Signal and Telegram still have a long way to go before approaching Messenger’s level of success.

The first version of Facebook Messenger was launched on August 9, 2011. The software is available on a variety of platforms, including the Web, Android, iOS, Windows 10, and Mac OS X. Users can send texts, images, videos, stickers, audio, and files, as well as respond to messages from other users and communicate with bots, using the app. Voice and video calls are both supported by the service.
