Facebook today launched the desktop version of its Messenger app for macOS and Windows. You can now video chat and stay connected with your friends and family from you Mac or PC.

With people working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Facebook saw more than 100 percent increase in people using their desktop browser for audio and video calling on Messenger.

Now with desktop apps for macOS and Windows, staying in touch is even more convenient and easier.

The desktop app supports group video calls, now on a bigger screen. Like the mobile app equivalent, it’s easy to connect with someone even if you don’t know their email or phone number. As long as you’re a Facebook friend, message or call away.

It’s also easy to multitask; the app remains accessible while you do other stuff on your computer so it’s easy to pop in and out of conversations.

When the app is hidden, you’ll receive notifications so you can access to new messages easily. That’s if you want to of course. You can mute and snooze notifications, too.

What’s great about the new Messenger app is that, like Telegram, your chats are synced across mobile and desktop. This means you’ll never miss a call or message regardless of what device you’re using.
