The world of technology is shrinking, and we are moving from small to smaller. From the bulkier and bigger phones to smarter and smaller phones of today, and from PCs to high end tablets, we are moving towards a future of shrinking devices. Facebook, bearing this foresight in mind, has concentrated more on the mobile phones and tablets than on the PC platforms, as Windows and Mac PCs have largely been ignored by them. Facebook initially launched the messenger app for PC, but discontinued it later. However, over time it has now been brought to notice by leaked images that Facebook is working on a Facebook Messenger for Mac.
This leaked photo via TechCrunch shows a Facebook employee working on the messenger for mac. Facebook was contacted over the same and the company replied by simply saying “We don’t comment on rumor or speculation.”
In 2011, Facebook had started posting job listings for desktop software developers for PC and Mac, and they ultimately built the Facebook Messenger for PC. However after the release, not much of an attention was given by Facebook to this app, and in 2014 it was announced that there will be no longer any updates for this app and Facebook abandoned the project by saying “We’re sorry, but we can no longer support Facebook Messenger for Windows, and it will stop working on March 3, 2014.” However, Facebook did start off with the messenger.com browser service.
Now that this image has been leaked, it adds a particular interest to the users of the service, that is Facebook actually working on an application for the Mac users? Would this mean a comeback in the Windows PC markets too? Only time can tell.
As of this moment the news is merely a speculation as the company has made no official comment on it. For more updates, keep following us on TheREM.
