Facebook has a mystery media event being held on Tuesday, January 15th. There have been rumours the announcement could related to a phone or mobile operating system launch. Now, other rumours have surfaced, courtesy of TechCrunch which claims Messenger for iPad will be coming:
Specifically I’m hearing that Messenger for iPad, replete with all the Messenger features we’ve come to love like emoticons, photosharing, read receipts, location tagging, group messaging, and the new voice-recorded messaging feature, is ready for the public eye. And basically, it’s what exists on the iPad but in a bigger format.
TechCrunch goes on to mention sources say “the app is “totally” ready to launch on Tuesday”. Messenger for iPad could be a way for Facebook to have its user rely more and more on the social network to communicate with friends and family. Below is an image hinting at Messenger for iPad:
Recently, Facebook launched an update to its Messenger iPhone app to allow for voice messages and VoIP calls (Canada is the only beta tester) with video. Bringing the experience to the iPad would seem like the next logical step. Anyone use Messenger to communicate with friends?
