Facebook Messenger Now Has 'Caller ID' So You Know Who's Messaging

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Facebook is today rolling out a new feature for its Messenger app that will tell you who’s trying to get in touch the first time they contact you. A photo, description of your connection and other public information, will be displayed, as shown in the image above.

Referring to it as “caller ID for messaging,” Facebook’s Vice President of Messaging David Marcus announced the tweak overnight. The feature, which will work on both iOS and Android, should help you work out who that person sending you a message is. [Facebook via Engadget]
