Facebook Messenger for WP just received an update pushing it to version 126.96.36.199, this latest version reportedly brings syncing with the phone contacts, as well as texting friends directly through app. the update also brings the ability to edit (draw and add text) to images from your gallery before sending them. However I haven’t found a way to “sync phone contacts” as mentioned in the changelog, nor have I been able to text people via phone number.
The official change-log can be found below:
Now you can message people even if you’re not Facebook friends
—Tap People to sync your phone contacts
—Enter anyone’s phone number to start texting them from the app
Add colorful drawings and text to photos from your camera roll before you send them
