Facebook Messenger 2.4 update brings Stickers, swipe-to-delete functionality


Back in April, Facebook had released a major update for its iOS app that brought the iconic Chat Heads and stickers feature from Facebook Home for Android.

Facebook has now released an update for its standalone messenger app, which brings the popular Stickers feature. Facebook Messenger 2.4 will also let you delete conversations in the Inbox by swiping, which has been added back on popular demand.

Here’s what’s new in Facebook Messenger 2.4:

Bring your messages to life with stickers:

  • Just tap the smiley to add a playful kitten or another cute critter
  • Send any sticker with one tap
  • For more sticker options, tap the basket

Other new features include:

  • Delete conversations from your inbox just by swiping (back by popular request)
  • Bug fixes

Facebook has mentioned that Stickers will be rolled out to everyone over the next few weeks, so don’t panic if you can’t access them after updating the app.

You can download the app via the Udpates tab in the App Store app or using this direct App Store link.
