The latest update brings some new UI changes along with other additional features to the Messenger application. The latest update improves the alignment on the search bar by moving the text in the center. The Home page now has two new tabs namely “Messages” and “Active”. The Active section lets you know the friends or family members who are currently active or online to chat on Messenger.

The Emoticons menu has now been moved below from the earlier pop up menu which appeared on top in the chat.  Name changes have been made to the Photos, videos and emoji section with them now being renamed as “Photos” and “Multimedia Content”.
