Messenger will now be able to send SMS messages

In a recent post on its website, Facebook said that users would now have the choice to send and receive SMS texts in Messenger without having to go different screens to communicate.

This new feature comes after allowing voice calls, Uber requests and money transfers, which are available to do through Messenger in certain countries. The announcement follows very similar news from Apple, which said its Messages app would include features designed to allow users to use it indefinitely without having to close it down.

Facebook has said that the iOS platform doesn’t currently support app permissions for accessing text messages, though the SMS recipient can be on any platform.
