easyfreefollowers and you got it
As shared, the new features of the messenger are always bringing weird options that not always are capable of understanding. Thank you for this post.

Re: Placing phone calls through FB Messanger
I was wondering the same thing. Did your question ever get answered?

Placing phone calls through FB Messanger
I was wondering about the blue phone icon that sometimes turns gray in the facebook messenger app.  If the icon is blue I know that person can be called, but why does it go from blue to grey?  Like it will be blue and then all of a sudden it will be grey and then a little later it turns blue again.  Does this mean the person is talking on their phone and they cant accept calls until they get off the phone?  Does the icon change back to blue after they get off the phone?

I post messages in FB so seldom its just not worth installing an app just for that.  I have their phone # and email, will go back to using them.

Chat heads
I'll admit that I hated the idea of chatheads when Facebook first came out with them, but now that they're gone, I'll miss the multitasking capability of having messaging integrated with the main app.

Re: Messenger
At first I thought it would be trouble to have another facebook app on my phone. They gave enough options to turn off alerts so I've been happy with it. I also don't message many folks very often...

Re: What I like about this messanger
If signal strength is weak, then data packets do get dropped and bandwidth is downgraded. I would imagine that a sentence containing ten words would require the same amount of data communication from both the main app and messenger, but yes, if a user is switching back and forth between messaging and the "home tab" -- it creates extra bandwidth requirements.

Re: Messenger
Interesting point, I have wondered about this business model ever since Facebook announced that it would be separating messenger into a different app. It seems like this decision only adds complications for the user and would create a negative impact by taking the user far from Facebook's main features.

However, Facebook did buy Whatsapp for $19 billion, and a few overseas social media competitors to Facebook, seem closer to Viber's model rather than, Facebook's model. It could be that Facebook defines social media and messenger (messages, voice and video) as two different sectors.

What I like about this messanger
Is that even when your phone signal is low or none exsistant you can still send and receive your messages when connected to WiFi
