“Over the last two years, we built a lot of capabilities to find the features that continue to set us apart. A lot of them have found their product market fit; some haven’t. While we raced to build these new features, the app became too cluttered. Expect to see us invest in massively simplifying and streamlining Messenger this year.”
Thank god. Over the past couple years, between the ads, Messenger Day, bots, etc, the Messenger app has become a bloated mess.
