Facebook Messenger Redesign Focuses on Better Navigation

With Facebook Messenger continuing to add new features at a fast rate, a redesign will soon roll out to iOS users focusing on improving navigation. TechCrunch first highlighted the changes.

While not a totally new look, the smaller changes should help to better streamline the app and make it more accessible for users.

New tabs on the top of the main screen are designed to make it easier to move between messages, active contacts, and groups. When there’s activity in a certain section, a red dot will appear.

The Groups tab is moving from the bottom of the navigation bar to a tab on the top of the screen. On top, you can also view tabs for messages and a list of who is currently active on the app.

On the bottom bar, users can now hit the Games button to head to the newly added feature.

All of the changes are rolling out to everyone worldwide starting this week.

Designed for the iPhone and all iPad models, Messenger can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
