New Facebook Mobile Messaging App in response to Google+ Huddles?

Thanks to Facebook’s purchase of messaging firm Beluga in March this year, Facebook on Tuesday introduced an app for mobile phones that acts as a standalone group chat client for mobile operating systems. The launch is seen as Facebook’s response to Google+ and its Huddles feature that also lets Google+ users instantly chat with friends. Facebook’s launch of video calling in partnership with Skype, some time back, is also seen emanating in response to Google's new social network.

What the app offers:

The new Facebook Mobile Messaging app, expands the chat features in Facebook's existing mobile app by including features like location-sharing, mobile photo-sharing, and instant messaging to friends or groups on Facebook.


The app which is available for download now, is already available for Android and Blackberry phones along with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
