As the Nokia X smartphone runs on a forked version of Google’s Android mobile operating system, which translates to it not having access to Google’s services such as the Play Store or Hangouts, this does not mean that you are unable to run Android apps on it. The developer, however, will play an important role, and we are pleased to say that Facebook Messenger is now available on the Nokia X, while making its appearance for the Nokia Lumia and Nokia Asha devices, too.
Doing away with likes, shares and personal feeds, the Facebook Messenger app intends to be a pure conversation app, concentrating on you having private conversations with your mates. This means there is no need for the full Facebook app to be installed beforehand, which is a good thing if you happen to be running low on memory on your smartphone. With the Facebook Messenger app on Nokia’s devices, you can check out who happens to be online, being able to create group chats and send photos and stickers, now how about that?
Those who are rocking toa Nokia Lumia will see your Facebook friends added to your People Hub automatically, where notifications pop up on the Start Screen. As for Nokia X and Asha owners, these notifications will appear in Fastlane.[Press Release]
