Facebook Messenger allows sign-ups with just name and phone number on Android devices!
Facebook messenger now allows users to sign-up with just only name and phone number, though this only for Android devices for now. You just need to download the app and tap the Get Started to reach your contacts faster, start group conversations, share photos and more. If you have Facebook Messenger app already installed on your Android device, there’s update available today and Messenger accounts will become available over the next few weeks.
The roll-out is currently focusing on Australia, India, Indonesia, South Africa and Venezuela, and the rest of the world should get it soon. Update is also coming to iOS, but the schedule is less definite.
