Facebook Now Supports Multiple Account, SMS Integration As Well
It's taken them a while, but Facebook finally updated the Facebook Messenger app to support multiple accounts, as well as provide support for SMS integration as well.
The move to enable multiple user support is a welcomed one. Prior to this, the only way you'd be able to switch users on the Facebook Messenger was to uninstall and then re-install the app on the mobile device. The process was cumbersome, tedious, and downright infuriating, and that's pretty much why the developer has made this option available to those of us who use Facebook Messenger as a daily conversational tool.
Activating your other accounts on an Android phone is easy. All you need to do is enter the app's settings page, tap on the Accounts menu, and then proceed to add or remove the accounts as you see fit.
On the subject of SMS integration, Facebook will be reintroducing the feature on Android devices for now, with no word as to when the feature will be available for iOS. In a statement made to The Verge:
“Right now, we're testing the ability for people to easily bring all their conversations — from SMS and Messenger — to one place. It's a really simple way to get, see, and respond to all your SMS messages in just one app. By choosing to access your SMS messages in Messenger, they're right alongside all the other enhanced features that Messenger offers.”
You can now open multiple accounts on Facebook Messenger.
