Facebook & Messenger for Windows 10 officially announced, available to download

Update: Facebook Messenger is also available to download in Windows Store now.
Facebook has today officially launched new Windows 10 apps for Facebook and Messenger.These new apps will load quickly and easily within Windows and have the most up-to-date features.

Facebook for Windows 10
We built the new Windows 10 Facebook app so it’s fast and easy to access your favorite features. Facebook is one click away from the Start Menu, and the app starts and loads your News Feed much faster than previous Facebook desktop applications. You can stay up-to-date with Facebook through desktop notifications, and you can pin a new Facebook Live Tile which shows you the latest updates from your friends, family and Pages you follow. It’s also easy to share photos to Facebook straight from your favorite apps or File Explorer.

We included the latest Facebook features in the new app, including Reactions, stickers in comments, and a right-hand column that shows birthday & event reminders, trending topics and more. We built an in-app browser to make it easier for people to read and share multiple articles from their News Feed.

You also can see when you have messages waiting for you with a Live Tile.

Facebook and Messenger for Windows 10 will both be available later today in the Windows Desktop App Store.The new appbe replacing the older Facebook Windows 8 listing in the Windows Store with the new Facebook Windows 10 app. People who have the Windows 8 app can choose to continue to use it, use Facebook in the browser or complete a free update to Windows 10.
