MessengerWindowsPhoneFriends650As promised by Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Manager for Windows Phone Program Management Joe Belfiore late last month, Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone is finally a reality and available for download from the Windows Phone Store.

Belfiore said at a Microsoft press event in Barcelona, Spain, prior to the 2014 GSMA Mobile World Congress, that the application would launch within “weeks,” adding:

We’ve been working with Facebook, testing out their implementation for a while. It’s looking good, and we will have it for our customers soon.

The description of Messenger from the Windows Phone Store page reads:

Messenger is just like texting, but you don’t have to pay for every message (it works with your data plan).

Features:

  • Get to all of your messages without having to open Facebook.
  • Bring your conversations to life with stickers and send photos privately.
  • Have group conversations and make plans on the go.
  • Share your location so people know when you’re nearby.
  • Know when people have seen your messages.
  • See who’s using Messenger and who’s active on Facebook.
  • Stay logged in so you never miss a message.
  • Turn off notifications when you’re working, sleeping, or just need a break.
  • Never lose your conversation history or contacts.
