Facebook Messenger for Android Updated With Android Wear Support and More
Facebook on Tuesday has updated its Messenger app for Android to version 9 with support to Google's Android Wear devices. The updated Facebook Messenger app for Android includes the ability to 'voice reply directly from your Android Wear device,' and also brings some non-Android Wear related features.

The announcement post on Google+ by Ian Lake, an Android Software Engineer at Facebook, also mentions that 'for many users', the Facebook Messenger app v9 will include the "ability to send a 'like' thumbs up reply and mute notifications from actions" or the notifications drawer on Android smartphones or Android Wear device.

The updated Facebook Messenger app is now listed on the Google Play store in India, though the exact version of the app varies with the device.

Earlier this week, Facebook added Messenger integration to the revamped Windows Phone app for WP7.5, WP8 and WP8.1 devices. The updated Facebook app for Windows Phone is available to download from the Windows Phone Store.

The new Facebook app version 5.3 for Windows Phone adds support for more languages, and lets users record videos and upload them from within the app itself. The company also noted the new Facebook Messenger integration with the updated Facebook app, adding a Messenger button on top that will switch quickly to the Messenger app. Users trying to type a message will also be directed to the Facebook Messenger app, which will also feature a button to take users back to the main Facebook app. For Windows Phone 8.1 users, the new Facebook app connect directly with the People Hub (Contacts) of the smartphone.
