iOS users who want to share images or links with friends can click the share button, after which a menu will appear allow them to choose the apps that they’d like to share it with. The apps are pretty standard and includes the Messages app, Mail app, and the usual range of social media apps such as Facebook and Twitter.
However for those who are frequent users of Facebook Messenger, you will be happy to learn that the app has recently been updated with an action extension, which basically means that you will be able to add Facebook Messenger to the list of apps you want to share data with, as you can see in the image above.
The feature is pretty straightforward and if you’ve ever used it before, it’s the same. Selecting the app will launch it and from there you can choose the contacts that you’d like to share the information. This will save you some time versus more “traditional” methods where you’d have to copy the link first, swap back to the app, and paste it and send it.
The latest update to Facebook Messenger brings it to version 22.0 and it seems that this was the only feature added to it. If you have yet to update your app, you can do so by heading on over to the iTunes App Store for the download.
