Facebook Messenger adds quick and easy sharing with new extension

Facebook has updated their Messenger app, adding a sharing extension. The sharing extension lets you share photos, videos, and more with your Facebook friends without needing to enter Messenger itself.

As with other share extensions, open the share menu in an app, then scroll to the More option, select it, and switch Messenger sharing on. When you choose to share a photo, video, or link with Messenger, you'll see a window that lets you add a caption and choose the recipients of your messages. Hit send, and you're all set.

Facebook Messenger 22.0 is available for download from the App Store now.

  • I think the OP meant a separate app aside from the main Facebook app...which I would agree with. :-) Sent from the iMore App
  • Where's the Instagram extension is my question.
  • I only get FB Messenger share in some instances: Safari, but not Narwhal, for example. I'm not a developer so is this an oversight or working-as-intended by FB?
