Facebook has now started rolling out a new, simplified version of their popular messaging app known as Messenger: Messenger 4. the latest update marks app version as 4.0 and will gradually roll out globally over the coming weeks. the company in a survey found that 7 out of 10 people says simplicity is the top priority for them in a messaging app.

Facebook says, “We believe Messenger 4 delivers the closeness and authenticity that you’ve been asking for — through simplicity of design and powerful features that put the focus back on messaging and connecting.”

The new Messenger will have three tabs instead of nine. Your conversations — both one-to-one and groups — are front and center in the Chats tab. For hundreds of millions of people every day who share pictures and videos, Messenger 4 will have visual communication features like Camera at the top so you can easily capture and share your selfies.

Once you tap into Messenger 4’s People tab, you can find friends, catch up on people’s Stories, and see everyone who is active right now. Then you have the Discover tab, where you can connect with businesses to get the latest deals, play Instant Games, book your next vacation, follow the news and more.

Messenger 4 has another way to personalize your conversations with a small but delightful update to chat customizations called color gradients. With this feature, you can now use multiple colors to customize your chat bubbles in conversations. You can see the colors change from red to blue, for example, as you scroll up and down a conversation. Color gradients can be changed any time to reflect your mood or topic of conversation.
