The social network “Facebook” has released its own messenger — “OK Message”. The application is developed for mobile devices for iOS and Android and is available in a limited number of markets. The release in Russia will be held in the next month.
“OK Messages” allow you to chat with your friends from Odnoklassniki, and to invite in the chat rooms people from the phone book in your smartphone. The messenger is available in both individual and group chats, in which users can share photos, videos, audio recordings, and gif files.
“Personally or in group chats send and receive messages, photos and videos without restrictions. The app is free and contains advertising”, — the developers. Messenger is aimed to work on mobile devices: most functions work without Internet connection — users have access to all correspondence, and media files, and messages drafted offline are sent automatically after the network access.
