After adding SMS messages to the Android version of the app earlier this week, Facebook tweaked its Messenger UI to get you sending messages faster. Underneath the list of recent messages, you'll now see a collection of your favorite contacts so you can get chatting quickly. The app will also show you birthdays like the social network's site and core app does, making light work of sending someone a note. That useful list of who's online is there as well, tucked down below the aforementioned messages and groups of contacts. With these changes, it should be even easier to send one of Facebook's new emoji when the time comes.
