Facebook updates Messenger and Pages Manager mobile apps

Facebook updated its standalone Messenger and Pages Manager mobile apps on Monday with new features and bug fixes.

Version 1.1 of Facebook Pages Manager for iOS adds functionality that was missing when the app was first released in May. Now page owners can view and reply to direct messages their page receives. Users can also adjust how often they receive notifications about their pages’ activity. Admins can receive push notifications for some pages and not others, or pause notifications overnight.

The app now has some support for Facebook Questions and events. Page owners can see answers to questions and guest lists for events created on their pages, but they cannot create events or post Questions from the app. Additionally, the update adds insights for check-ins and links to pages’ photo albums, which were not included in the first iteration of the app.

Facebook Messenger for iOS and Android also received some significant updates, giving users the ability to share bigger photos, delete individual messages from conversations, and switch between multiple conversations with in-app notifications. Users can now include friends of friends in conversations and see who’s available when starting a new conversation. The most obvious cosmetic change to the Facebook Messenger is its new logo. Improvements under the hood make for faster app loading, navigating and sending, as well as more reliable push notifications, according to the app’s release notes.

Pages Manager for iOS can be downloaded here. It is not yet available for other devices. Messenger for iOS can be downloaded here and for Android here.
