Instantly share videos and 'big likes' in latest Facebook Messenger update

Facebook Messenger

Facebook has rolled out another update for its Messenger app on iOS. The social network has implemented instant video sharing and the ability to send 'big likes' to friends in the conversation, just in case you happen to really like something. This latest update brings the app up to version 6.0, with 5.0 introducing the sending of video, alongside enhancements to photo sharing and more.

The new video sharing feature brings the Messenger app in line with what Snapchat offers. It's now possible to shoot and play 15-second video messages from the camera straight into the conversation. Why communicate via text when video is available? It's also designed with the selfie in mind. The camera will default to the front-facing shooter, but it's also possible to record some footage with the main camera.

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
