Messenger now powering over 2.8 billion minutes of Facebook chat

Piero Sierra: We’re excited to announce today that Facebook chat is now available to over 75 million more Messenger customers worldwide, wherever Facebook is available.

In November, we gave an update on Messenger powering over 1.5 billion minutes of Facebook chat. Since then, the number of Messenger customers who have connected Messenger to Facebook has grown over 75% to nearly 18 million people. The addition of these new connections has nearly doubled the number of chat sessions between Messenger and Facebook to about 440 million, powering more than 2.8 billion minutes of Facebook chat. We expect even more progress with the availability of Facebook chat from Messenger to the remaining countries we’re releasing this feature to today.
