When Facebook first started pushing its users to use Messenger, the responses weren't very positive. Many people weren't a fan of needing to use two apps instead of one to use all the features of Facebook, so some Android users turned to the mobile web application where they could browse their news feed and message people in one place.
Now, Facebook is planning on removing messaging from its mobile web app, forcing Android users to download Messenger if they want to chat with Facebook friends. Many of those users are not happy about it.
In early April, Facebook announced a very significant change to its mobile apps: A Facebook Live tab was to take center place in the app, pushing the Messenger button aside. The tab would offer a dedicated place for users to find live videos — but even though a month has passed since the initial announcement, very few people have seen the feature in the flesh.
Until now, that is. My Facebook app on Android just received the update, and after playing with it for half an hour, I can tell you that this will significantly change the way we use Facebook.
