Anonymous sources have informed UberGizmo that SMS support within Facebook Messenger on the horizon, meaning at some point you'll be able to text to phone numbers within the app in addition to your Facebook contacts.


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.
