Facebook Messenger for Mac is quietly available

It looks like Facebook is more broadly testing the native Facebook Messenger Mac app, and the download link is publicly available.

Announced at Facebook’s F8 developer keynote in April, the app brings what looks like a pretty basic version of the mobile Messenger app to desktop. It even has a dark mode, which only recently rolled out to the mobile Messenger app. However, because the app might still be in testing, you need to restart it entirely for dark mode to activate.

There’s also a chance that a Windows version is available, however

The app is currently available at messenger.com/download, though judging by the lack of publicity for its availability, it might not yet be ready for public consumption.

Update: I’ve been told that the link above may not work, so here is the direct link to the download as well.
