Facebook has unveiled a new Messenger design. The major aspects of the design features include a new logo, new default chat color, new chat themes, and new custom reactions. This new design comes with the updated version of the app.
“The new look reflects a shift to the future of messaging – a more dynamic, fun and integrated way to hang out with your favorite people, on your favorite apps and devices”Facebook Blog Post
On the Google Play Store, the Messenger app icon has already been changed to the new gradient colored icon. Facebook plans to add other new features to the app in the future as well. Facebook Messenger’s resource-conservative Lite version has also implemented the color combinations.
Coming soon is features like selfie stickers and vanish mode. Vanish mode is also coming on Instagram and was announced when Facebook integrated Messenger and Instagram DMs.
As Instagram puts it, you can set messages to disappear after being seen automatically using vanish mode.
