Hey guys.

I recentlys tarted using messenger myself (assuming we’re talking about the facebook one). It is alright. I’d still rather use the simple mobile website layout for most things but it’s nice to see when you have messages when you’re not focused on and refreshing a browser window.

Apparently there is a settings button. I can’t seem to find this. I’m using JFW 2018 though and it doesn’t really work the best with these Universal apps. Although I am pretty sure I grabbed something from the Microsoft Store before using jFW, in order to grab messenger I had to switch to nVDA to activate the ‘get” button that I assume the person below me here is referring to.

The call feature seems nice … audio quality is inferior to Skype’s, but I guess that is ok.

Like how you know a message as arrived, and things like that.

Did any one find out how to delete a message? That's the only thing that doesn't work for me in the new client.

I use it myself. I have been for a few weeks and it rocks.

I just minimize my outlook and go to Facebook, then into the messages part of Face Book. Easy and, for me at least efficient.  Yes, JAWS works fine with messenger or Face Book, it is just the browser that gives me problems.  Some are more informative then others.
