facebook messengerAs per the reports, Facebook confirmed that it is looking to bring in SMS support in Facebook Messenger has also planned to go with multiple account support. At least for now, the two functions are only for Android users.

Facebook Spoke men told: "At Messenger, we are always trying to create new ways for people to communicate seamlessly with everyone. Right now, we�re testing the ability for people to easily bring all their conversations � from SMS and Messenger � to one place. It�s a really simple way to get, see and respond to all your SMS messages in just one app. By choosing to access your SMS messages in Messenger, they�re right alongside all the other enhanced features that Messenger offers."

Facebook Messenger used to have SMS integration, but the feature was removed in November 2013. At the time, Facebook said that the feature �just didn�t take off.�

Facebook declined to say how many people are able to take advantage of SMS in Messenger. The test is only for a small number of Android users in the U.S. To see if you have the feature, check if you have a �Change SMS App� option in your Messenger settings.

As people using Messenger are growing, Facebook is planning to introduce multiple account support to the messenger.

Millions of people share phones with their family and friends. Until now, there hasn�t been an easy way for people to access their individual Messenger accounts from shared devices. To address this, we�ve launched a feature on Android to enable multiple people to log in and use Messenger from a single phone.
