Facebook Messenger is a messaging service that allows users to communicate with their Facebook friends and family. It was initially used in conjunction with Facebook, but it eventually became a stand-alone piece of software that you can install from the Apple Store for iOS or the Google Play Store for Android. It’s regularly updated, and new features are added regularly. One of those capabilities is the messenger wallpaper and theme for chats in Messenger. This Techschumz article will show you how to change your Facebook Messenger Background on iOS and Android phones.
