Here’s the Messenger 5.0 changelog:

  • More ways to message: Everything’s front and center, so it’s easier to send photos, voice messages and more.
  • Video: Send videos from your phone’s camera roll and when people send you videos, play them right in the app.
  • Instant photo sharing: Take a photo and send it in just one tap, without leaving the conversation.
  • Shortcuts to stickers: When someone sends you a sticker, press and hold down on it to get the pack.
  • Improved search: Enter the names of people and groups to find them quickly.
  • Other fixes, including to stickers and groups.

Facebook says this update will also be rolling out on Android “this week.”
