Simple and smart Facebook Messenger Desktop App. Hope that you'll like it.

Facebook Messenger port for the desktop environment (Unofficial release)

Just a simple HTML wrapper built with Electron.

No, it does not distort the sound. Just a little mistake while taking video.

If you click received youtube link and the video publisher didn't block embeds, your app opens youtube video within itself. If publisher disabled embeds... Well... You're ducked. No video will be shown.

If you close or minimize the app, the app stays in the tray. If you close the app from the tray menu, it finishes its job and closes.

If you get a message in tray mode, icon with the profile picture of your conversation buddy appears (If you enable notifications). No sounds, no distractions. Test it, suggest some changes and I'll work on it further.


**Camera interface was added (Should fix external camera issues)

Use the command line and type:

snap connect:messengerport:camera :camera

To check if the interface was assigned successfully:

snap interfaces :camera




**Code libraries were renewed

**Notification Bubble bug was fixed

**Due to safety reasons only youtube links were allowed to be opened
