Facebook to pull messaging support from older versions
Popular social media platform Facebook is ending messaging support for older versions of the Facebook and Messenger mobile apps as the company upgrades its support features for smartphones. The company revealed in a blog post that support will end by the end of March and also asked users to update their mobile apps to the latest version available, reports NDTV. "One of the ways we continue to improve is by consistently introducing rich features, like voice and video calling, games, and bots for Messenger. Using older versions of apps means that experiences won't work well or sometimes not at all,” Facebook said in the blog post. “As a result, we are asking people who are using older versions to upgrade so they can enjoy more of the delightful features of Messenger... We will be ending support for messaging in some older mobile app versions of Messenger and Facebook. “If your devices do not support the newest versions of Facebook, we recommend going to Facebook.com through your mobile browser," the blog post added. The affected versions include v55 of the Facebook app and v10 of Messenger on Android. Further, it will also stop support for Facebook on Windows Phone. Facebook for iPad v26, Messenger v8 for iOS, Facebook for iOS released in 2011, Facebook for Windows Phone, Messenger for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, and Facebook for Windows 8 and the 8.1 desktop will not be supported also. The social media giant also said that its team spends countless hours making the platform best.
