Windows Phone:

Today’s Facebook Messenger to Windows Phone is more of a bug-fixing update. The update changed the version of the app to 8.0.1.0 and as it is visible from the version number, there is nothing much to get excited about the update. The one feature that came along with the Android update was the forwarding message or the photo feature.

The update is also said to improve the overall performance of the app.
