Back in 2014, Facebook started forcing users to download its standalone Messenger app for messaging on smartphones, by disabling messaging from the Facebook app. Now, Facebook is doing the same by disabling messaging in its mobile website.

Facebook is removing the messaging capability from its mobile web application, according to a notice being served to users: “Your conversations are moving to Messenger,” it reads.

At the moment, you can just dismiss the notice and go about your business. But this summer the warning will become an impenetrable wall, and your only option will be to download the official Messenger app.


And one more thing while we’re at it. Let us download Facebook Lite (where messaging still works, by the way)! This geo-restriction BS has got to go. Some of us have the phone equivalent of trash fires and don’t want to run that pair of official apps for getting the full Facebook experience.

This worries me a lot, because this forcing Myntra-like trend didn’t take a good start. It’ll cause inconvenience to many, and people might even start quitting. This is the era of adaption, people move on if inconvenient.

Hope Facebook knows whatever they are doing.
