Millions of people around the world spend a lot of time chatting with friends on their mobile device. Companies like WhatsApp and SnapChat have certainly taken advantage of this and come out with features that turn the rather humble text messenger into a SuperTool that allow photos, videos, and voice messages to be shared.
Facebook with its huge user base has also churned out a standalone messaging app Facebook Messenger, which has not received a great response. However, that's about to change with the announcement of third party app integration.
Third Party Facebook Messenger apps now let you do super fun stuff such as adding your own personal emoji’s, creating awesome GIFs and musical messages and so on. If you have given up on Facebook messenger, its time to integrate these apps and give it another go.
All the apps are readily available on the app in the conversation view (tap the three-dotted menu in the conversation thread to access them) or you can download them via the links in this article.
Best Third Party Facebook Messenger Apps
Sometimes the best expressions in a conversation are depicted by animations.
