fb_at_work_messengerEarlier this year, Facebook at Work was announced. For those unfamiliar, Facebook at Work is basically Facebook aimed at professionals. This allows employees at a company to communicate with each other privately, so in a way you could think of it as a private social network just for your company.

So if there are any events, files that you need to share, or topics that need discussing on a private level, Facebook at Work would be it. The good news is that if you were looking for more mobile ways to communicate with your colleagues, it looks like Facebook has launched a dedicated Facebook at Work messaging app.

The app will allow users to message each other privately, hold group checks, share photos, videos, make voice calls, and so on. Essentially it is like the regular Messenger app, except that it is for Facebook at Work users. Unfortunately for now it looks like the app will be limited to Android devices.

However the good news is that iOS users can look forward to its release in the future as the social network is currently working on the iOS version. As it stands Facebook at Work is still in beta and about 300 companies are participating in it. It is expected to launch in full come 2016 where it will be adopting the freemium model.
