Facebook messenger has just gotten a major upgrade: it can now be used irrespective of whether you have a Facebook account or not. Yes,that’s right. Previously, you needed Facebook for messenger,but that’s no longer the case right now.
The new method requires signing up with a phone number and a picture, and bam! you’re in. This, in other words, will make it like Whatsapp,but I really doubt if it’d be as lightweight as Whatsapp, considering the way messenger has hogged ram and battery.
How to sign up for messenger without a Facebook account
1. Download and install the messenger app from Google play store.
2. Open the messenger app on your device.
3. The new welcome message you’d get is Not On Facebook?
4. Click there, and you will be able to sign up with your name, phone number and photo.
5. That’s it.
Currently,this upgrade is available for countries like Canada, Peru, USA and Venezuela.. This is because it’s still being tested, after which it’d be rolled out for every country.
