Looking Back on 2022

This year, the Messenger team has been busier than ever. We’ve launched 50+ new features and made tons of improvements to make this our fastest version of Messenger yet. As we near the end of the year, I want to take a moment to highlight some of the biggest enhancements we’ve begun to roll out and everyone can expect to see in 2023.

Chat with your community

While our products have always helped you connect with your friends and family, we’re now helping to connect communities. This year, we’ve started adding features to help you connect with people around shared interests, so you can take your community with you anywhere you go. 

Securely chat with end-to-end encryption

We started making upgrades to your security. From end-to-end encryption to ephemeral features like disappearing messages, we want your chats to be private and safe.

Stay safe while messaging

We want our messaging products to provide a secure and safe space for people to connect. This year we improved safety across private and public chats with stronger prevention measures, improved safety controls and moderation tools.

Express yourself

We’re dedicated to giving you the most expressive experience possible. This year, we focused on bringing your thread to life with stickers and avatars. 

Let us work for you

We’re here to make your life easier. With these new tools, we are ready to help you make the most of your experience.

From all of us at Messenger, happy new year!
