Facebook wants its Messenger app to be the main hub for all your conversations.

If you don t see it yet, it s rolling out now in the latest update from the Google Play Store.

You can toggle off this setting to switch back over to another SMS app.

Once enabled, Messenger can handle all your SMS and Facebook conversations.

You do, however, get to use all those stickers, emojis, and location-sharing features that are native to Messenger with your SMS chats.

Why this matters: One annoyance of over-the-top messaging clients is they often don t include an option to send an SMS message, which is still a popular way to contact people as it doesn't require your contacts to use the same app or service as you.
