638411_largerFacebook has updated its popular Facebook Messenger app with 15-second videos and “big likes”, adding more ways for users to interact with their friends.

What’s New
Instant Video Sending: Shoot and play 15-second video messages from the camera right in the app

Big Likes: Press and hold to send an even bigger thumbs up when you really, really like something.

Easy video sharing has been a popular new feature for messaging apps, with Snapchat getting updated with live video in May and Facebook-owned WhatsApp planning to add video calling. At WWDC, Apple announced that its Messages app would be receiving in-line video messages in iOS 8. However, Facebook Messenger’s Instant Video feature is more similar to Apple’s implementation of video rather than Snapchat or WhatsApp.

Facebook Messenger is available in the App Store for free. [Direct Link]
