Users of Facebook Messenger on Windows and Firefox OS have recently received a notification announcing that the messaging app will shut down on March 3.

We're sorry, but we can no longer support Facebook Messenger for Windows/Firefox, and it will stop working on March 3, 2014. We really appreciate you using Messenger to reach your friends, and we want to make sure you know that you can keep chatting and view all your messages on http://www.facebook.com

Aside from the notification, the link for the Facebook Messenger app has already been taken down on Facebook.

The social networking giant did not provide any reason as to why it will close down its desktop chat client. But it’s possible that it’s trying to redirect more traffic to its website probably to increase revenues from ads. Another angle that can be looked at would be that the app’s usage has gone down to make it worthwhile to maintain.

Users who still want to check their messages on the social network, simply need to go to Facebook’s website.
