Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone hasn't always been quite as feature rich as its counterparts on other platforms -- it's just over five months old now, after all -- but the social giant is quickly trying to close that gap. Case in point: the latest Messenger update finally packs the ability to send voice messages, something users have apparently been clamoring over for ages now. Since you'll now have the ability to verbally chatter with your compadres (alas, there's still no proper voice calling), it's probably for the best that the update also comes with tweaks to reduce the amount of data the app consumes. Throw in the ability to fire off emoticons at your pals and you've got yourself this new build in a nutshell -- it's waiting in the Windows Store for you whenever you're ready to gab.
