Facebook has upgraded its mobile messaging application which
will enable Android-based smartphone users to send texts, photos and other
content to each in select countries. Earlier, the Messenger app required all
users to be Facebook members before, but post this update, the service will now
only need a phone number.

The upgraded app, running on Google’s Android platform, will
initially be available in Australia, India, Indonesia, South Africa and
Venezuela. Facebook said it plans to expand it to other countries in the
future. The Messenger application will eventually become available on Apple’s
iPhone.

“You can create a Messenger account with
just your name and phone number, and start messaging your mobile contacts. We’re
doing this because we’re serious about messaging and realize that limiting the
reach to just those on Facebook limits the ability for people to reach anyone
in their address book,” the company has said in a statement.
