Facebook Messenger Material Design Update

Facebook has rolled out a brand new update to their Messenger app. It brings with it a fresh Material Design look, and a bit of a UI reorganization.

The update should be live on Google Play now. So check the Play application if you don’t have auto-updates turned on.

Personally, I’ll be holding off on Messenger. The application absolutely destroyed both the battery life and overall performance of my LG G4. Since uninstalling, my phone lasts longer and runs more smoothly, and this is something others have noticed as well.

If you downloaded the Facebook Messenger update, let me know if you’ve noticed better battery draining and memory usage. I have always loved the application as a messaging client, I just can’t deal with the resource hogging.
