Facebook launches new two-pane layout for Messages, adds multiple-photo support and keyboard shortcuts
Facebook has just launched a nice-looking update to its Messages feature, introducing a two-pane layout that makes for a cleaner way to use the service. Theres also support for multiple photos and a set of keyboard shortcuts.
The changes mirror some of the features that have only been available in Messenger foriOS and Android until now. The two-pane configuration makes for easier browsing of your list, while maintaining an open thread of conversation. Each of your conversations is essentially turned into a mini-timeline of posts, mimicking the main interface quite well.
The old interface was an incredibly lame set of window-spanning single messages that you had to click on to see conversations, so this is an enormous improvement.
You can still search for names and keywords from the box... [via The Next Web]
