Facebook Messenger Gets iOS 7 Update, Adds Ability to Text Any Number

Facebook Messenger for iOS has just received a major 3.0 update to bring an overhauled interface for iOS 7. The app now allows you to message people in your contacts, not just Facebook.

What’s New in Version 3.0
What’s New:
A completely new design, updated for IOS7. Custom in-app sounds.

Not just for Facebook friends: Now you can message people in your phone book. And it’s easy to add new contacts—just enter a phone number.

We just quickly tested out this update and we must say it’s a pretty slick redesign. If your contacts have a blue icon next to their name it means you will be able to message them through the app. We didn’t opt-in to sync our contacts with Facebook’s servers, though.
