It's said SMS support will be available for Android only at first; iOS support should come at a later date. It's also rumored the settings pane will feature a separate colour scheme from the normal messaging window so as to differentiate between the two: SMS messages will be displayed as purple while Messenger messages will be displayed in the usual blue scheme.

We'll have more as it comes.
