Official Facebook Messenger and Instagram apps arrive for Samsung Z1

It was first reported last month that the official Facebook Messenger and Instagram apps for Samsung Z1 were in final testing and would be released to the public very soon. The wait ends for you today if you happen to have Samsung’s Tizen powered smartphone, both official applications are now available for download on the Z1 through the Tizen Store.

Version 27.0.0 is now available from the Tizen Store and it weighs in at 25.47MB, Facebook Services is required for this to work and that’s an extra 29MB download. Instagram version 7.0.0 is also live now in the Tizen Store and it comes in at 9.39MB. The apps will certainly be gladly received by users who have been waiting for them to arrive, it’s a small but important step forward in bolstering Tizen’s app credentials.

i’m really intrigued by Tizen. Not sure about the plans Samsung has (in general nobody knows, not even them..hehe), but i can imagine that the Z1 is the device to show how much it’s being adopted by people. If more apps are being released and if they’re of good quality as is (or might be) the OS itself on this phone, then i guess Samsung has a potential winner with Tizen.

That’s a very interesting news for the Samsung’s Tizen powered smartphone owners. Now we are waiting for the same apps on the Tizen powered Gear Watch.

Take your time but do it good.

This is what I was thinking too.

With the watches running Tizen hopefully we could see a Facebook/Instagram/WhatsApp appearance on the Gear A (Orbis).

This will win it all for me.
