Facebook Officially Rolls Out Multiple-account Support for its Android Messenger

There is good news for families where many members use the same tablet, as Facebook has formally introduced multiple-account support for its Android Messenger app.

This new feature was earlier tested with beta users along with some non-beta users too. It allows a number of people to log in and use the Android Messenger from a single device but keeps the messages safe from the prying eyes.

The new version of Messenger for Android the messages in different accounts do not show up on each other and are kept separately. According to a post on Facebook, "Anyone else who shares the device will just see the number of notifications of messages that you have, but they will never be able to see the content of your messages."

So your messages are safe as the other users can see only the notifications for new messages and how many unread messages are there without having a chance to peek into the actual contents, without switching accounts that can be password protected.

Reportedly, a recently leaked document revealed that Facebook plans to introduce advertisements to its Messenger app. The adverts will be sent to those users who have earlier accessed the sites of those businesses which are sending those ads.
