Facebook Messenger has just been updated with a feature some will undoubtedly find most useful – the ability to send voice messages to your Facebook friends. As TechCrunch describes it:

Similar to Facebook Poke’s video recording interface, you press and hold the button, talk or record a sound up to one minute in length, and then release the button to stop recording.

Facebook releases Facebook Messenger for iPhone and Android

Use Facebook much? If so, you’ll want to check out the newly released Facebook Messenger for the iPhone. Seen as the answer to more established apps in the market like WhatsApp Messenger (TMA Review) and Apple’s upcoming iMessenger on iOS 5, FB Messenger allows you to send messages to anyone on your friends list and even in your mobile contacts.

Facebook Messenger is a faster way to message. Reach friends right on their phones, get and send messages fast, message everyone at once and more.

• Message friends, groups of friends or anyone in your mobile contacts
• Map your location, find your friends and make plans on the go
• Get mobile notifications so you never miss a message
• Include photos so friends can see what you’re doing

And like the fairly more low-key GroupMe app, Facebook Messenger easily lets you add multiple people into the conversation, great for coordinating events and other secret rendezvous.
