We reported a week ago that the updated Facebook Messenger Beta app was rolling out to most users, and today ALumia reports that the improvements are also coming to non-Beta users.

The new app dumps the OSMeta framework and is subsequently 100 MB smaller than the old version. It also only supports 64 bit processors and has a new icon.
Other new features include:
- Ability to permanently delete sent messages
- Introduction of new themes (dark theme, grey theme)
- Ability to send files
- Full-screen mode
- Ability to hide chats
- New icon
- Updated emoticons
ALumia demonstrated the updated app in their video here:
