On Wednesday, Facebook released an update to its Messenger application for iOS. Messenger version 52.0 mainly brings support for 3D Touch for iPhone 6S and 6S Plus owners.

Holding down on the Messenger icon on the Homescreen will now pop up with helpful shortcuts for the user. Apart from being able to compose a new message to anyone, Messenger's 3D Touch shortcuts also display three most frequently messaged users.

Last Summer, Facebook began allowing users to sign up for Messenger with only a phone number, no Facebook account needed. Packaged along with version 52.0 is the ability to reach all users by sending a message request.

Finally, sending any winter-related emoji or stickers will now cause snowflakes to fall across Messenger's screen.

Facebook's Messenger is now available to download in the iTunes App Store for free.
