这意味着新版Messenger的下载量较小，更新较小，并且启动速度比以前更快。正如Facebook 指出的那样，“如果您每天只打开一次或两次玩游戏或看电影的应用，更快的启动时间可能并不重要，但每天多次打开应用时，这起着很大的作用。 。”
My favorite type of application update is updates that reduce bloat. With a new version of Messenger for iOS, Facebook has largely achieved this goal. In fact, instead of rewriting some code, the company's engineers rewritten Messenger from scratch, reducing its 1.7 million lines of code to just 360,000 lines.
This means that the new version of Messenger has fewer downloads, smaller updates, and launches faster than before. As Facebook points out, "If you open an app for playing games or watching movies only once or twice a day, faster startup times may not matter, but it plays a big role when you open the app multiple times a day. . "
More precisely, Facebook claims that Messenger now loads twice as fast as previous versions of iOS (only a quarter of its original size).
I have installed a new Messenger, and although I did notice that it is faster, the rest looks almost the same as before. I think this is because I only use Messenger for one simple task: sending and receiving messages and occasional photos.
It seems Facebook has also received the message (pun intended). The company says it has simplified the application by reducing some clutter. In one example, the contact list was reduced from 40 versions (wow!) To one. Due to this change, some features are temporarily unavailable, but Facebook says it will try to restore them "as soon as possible."
It sounds as if Facebook hasn't removed a feature from Messenger, but that's not the case. The company said in a more detailed engineering blog post, "It's important to keep all of the most commonly used features.
So certain features have to be used, one of which (as TechCrunch reported in February) is the Discovery tab, which highlights the Messenger app and robots. If you look like me, you won't miss a lot.
