  • Everything you love about Messenger on a bigger screen. Including Dark Mode and GIFs.
  • Multitasking. Your chats are easily accessible, and you can pop in and out of the app while doing other things on your computer.
  • Notifications. You can receive notifications for new messages, so you can quickly find the chat you’re looking for. But you’re in control — you can choose to mute and snooze notifications.
  • Chats sync across mobile and desktop. You’ll never miss a call or message no matter what device you’re using.
  • Easy to connect. You don’t need to know someone’s email or phone number since all your Facebook friends have Messenger.

At moment  Facebook Messenger Desktop app can only handle up to 8 group video call participants, opposed to 100 or more with Zoom and Google Meet.

It also doesn’t offer a way to easily share a URL that lets other people join a video call, so it’s not useful for public webinars at the moment.
