While Facebook is rapidly developing experiences for iOS and Android, the Windows Phone platform often gets short shrift. The company is changing that, announcing Wednesday that Facebook Messenger has launched for Windows Phone.

Here’s a list of features in the first version of Messenger for Windows Phone:

  • Get to all your messages without having to open Facebook.
  • Bring your conversations to life with stickers and send photos privately.
  • Have group conversations and make plans on the go.
  • Share your location so people know when you’re nearby.
  • Know when people have seen your messages.
  • See who’s using Messenger and who’s active on Facebook.
  • Stay logged in so you never miss a message.
  • Turn off notifications when you’re working, sleeping or just need a break.
  • Never lose your conversation history or contacts.

Early reviews are positive, as the app already has roughly a 4.5 star rating among users.
