The SMS Back a Facebook Messenger Four Years Later

Facebook has just announced that SMS messages will return to your messaging Facebook Messenger application. Go back? So yes, since Messenger was already capable of sending and receiving SMS until the function was disabled back in 2012.

Said and done: SMS they are already available Messenger exclusively for users of Android made with the update available in Google Play. To activate the only thing you have to do is go to options (the tab on the right), playing in the new SMS section and choose Messenger as your messaging application.

If you do not have this menu, you can also go to the Android settings, paragraph More networks (or equivalent in your ROM) and playing in messaging application default, where Messenger should appear.

Déjà vu

Explanations of why Facebook has become to activate the SMS in your messaging application are at least somewhat superficial: the idea is that you can communicate with everyone from a single application, whether they are SMS as instant messages. A something funny from affirmation of the company that also owns WhatsApp, and therefore should be more open to people to use multiple applications.

Integration of SMS on Facebook Messenger you can expect the same thing you had before 2012 or what you get today by activating the same Hangouts, it seems that Facebook does not believe that of “people who forget their history are doomed to repeat it”. Effectively, is a little mess, even though Facebook has tried to differentiate through SMS a different color.

In this way, when you want to write a message to your mother, you will receive a string of options: message on Facebook, SMS to work, SMS on mobile, SMS home… In any case, this confusion only you will apply to the first message in each conversation. Then it is like sending one message more.

Remember, that Yes, that SMS still SMS. Facebook says that it does not read them or stores them in any way, and will continue to costing you money if you do not have a plan of free messages.
