Facebook Messenger for Android Gets Updated To v1.7 with location features


Facebook Messenger App Android and iOS has been updated to v1.7 with several changes. Read receipts are the most noticeable addition to version 1.7, with the word “seen” appearing beneath a message when its recipient has taken a look. It also includes new location features.

  • Now it’s even easier to reach groups of friends on the go:
  • Text everyone for free, using your existing data plan
  • Reach friends wherever they are now – on their phone or the web
  • Know who’s seen your message, and who hasn’t
  • See where friends are messaging you from

Location tracking is turned on by default when installing the latest update. It can be disabled via the app’s settings menu.

Hi, I am an avid Android fan since its release. Later, I decided to merge my interests in writing and opened up GoAndroid Blog. I love to surf, write, read about new things.
