Facebook Messenger Contrary Headwind

The popular social network has not received many praises to separate messages from hovedappen.

Facebook is beginning to shut down for the messages in hovedappen and thus execute the jump over to the separate Facebook Messenger app. There was some opposition to this, when Facebook announced it, and it has not abated, now where the change is in progress.

Right now get the latest version of the Facebook Messenger on the Apple devices only one star out of five, and on Android sound for the vast majority of recent assessments also only on a star.

The criticism is massive in the comments for the app, and there are three primary reasons for dissatisfaction with the app, which is echoed in the Android version.

Firstly, people are very upset that it is forced. It is far from all, who prefer to have the messages in an app for it, and it is that Facebook has taken selected for users do not fall on fertile ground.

The second point is that the app stands and uses RAM and power in the background, a consumption of the phone’s resources are far from being necessary in the eyes of many.

The third is that the app must have permission to look at a lot of different departments of the phone, which in the eyes of many is not necessary. Many users do not see why the app, for example, must have access to look in the phone’s SMS messages.

Misunderstood vulnerability

Facebook even believe, however, that especially the last point does not hold water. It is Google that articulates the permissions an app must obtain in order to be installed, and it does not necessarily match with the way Facebook itself would have facilitated them.

In addition, tells Facebook to Mashable, that it is not possible for Facebook Messenger being exploited fully if it does not have the permissions that are being asked.

Facebook has even created a page, which sheds a little more light on the permissions you give on Android, and what they will be used for.

For example, mentions Facebook, to Messenger app must have access to the phone’s microphone, for otherwise we would not be able to send voice messages over Facebook Messenger. It is, therefore, not to spy on users.

Facebook also tells that there is nothing new in the permissions, as Facebook Messenger asks, if you previously had the or Facebooks hovedapp installed.

Back in april told Facebook’s spokeswoman for our site, the change has been made to enhance the chat experience on your phone, when they saw that you answered 20 percent faster in the separate app.

In addition, Facebook could change more quickly in the Messenger app when they, for example, must introduce new functions, and that is why Facebook Messenger probably here to stay.
