Facebook lets you sign Up for Messenger, without a Facebook Account

Facebook has announced that it has opened up Facebook Messenger and users will no longer require a Facebook account, which was the previous requirement.

Signing up for the service is simple, just download the app, and on the Messenger welcome screen, you will now see an option that says “Not on Facebook?”.

From there, you can sign up with your name, phone number and a photo.

Facebook state:

“With this update, more people can enjoy all the features that are available on Messenger – including photos, videos, group chats, voice and video calling, stickers and more.

All you need is a phone number.”

At present, the update is rolling out in Canada, the United States, Peru and Venezuela.
