In-app messaging features were removed by Facebook in 2014, a move that had sparked strong backlash. CEO Mark Zuckerberg justified the decision at the time, saying that having Messenger as a separate app allows for “a better experience.”

However, competitors such as TikTok, Twitter, Snapchat and LinkedIn give access to messages without the user having to switch to another app, making it much easier for the user.

Today the user has access to Messenger through Facebook only via computer, however there is also a separate Messenger app for desktops.
