Facebook goes on with their constant doing and undoing of projects, and now it seems that the Messenger for Windows is getting the axe.
Following the announcement of the shutdown for every @facebook.com email, Zukerberg’s company seems they have a new victim for their development process: this time around it’s the Facebook Messenger for Windows, which will stop being available on March 3rd.
Current users are already getting notified via the app itself, where it reads “We’re sorry, but we can no longer support Facebook Messenger for Windows, and it will stop working on March 3, 2014. We really appreciate you using Messenger to reach your friends, and we want to make sure you know that you can keep chatting and view all your messages on Facebook.com”
While we haven’t been able to find any specific reason for this shutdown, we’re going to assume it has to do with lack of use, and eventual reliance on whatever they can get from their recent acquisition, the Whatsapp team.
