      Can you see who is online?

        Nope, those green dots of the Play Store screenshot still aren’t there.

      Does Facebook redirects you to Messenger Lite, when you click on Messages in Facebook app? Or it still redirects you to Playstore to download the full Messenger?

      1. You still can’t save pictures. And some are just failing to load, but that may just be me.
      2. Still no inflatable emoji. 😞 But at least you can still spam the 👍 button. Drives my friends crazy. 😃

      Anything is better than standard Messenger. I’m not complaining at all.
      I just wish that Facebook would release this in America.
      This is what Messenger *should* have been. No annoying chat heads, no storage eating, you-only-use-it-once features, and no sluggishness.
