One of the majorTech news site  reported that the app was first let go for testing in November last year, but is now available via public download link in the social networking site’s Help Center. The app will only run on Windows 7 operating system, though, added another tech site, The edge.

Facebook confirmed that the client permits users to chat and message with Facebook friends, see the latest updates from their community and get quick notifications about what is going on–all without being on the Facebook site.

The Verge positioned out that the Windows client is the latest in a series of standalone Facebook chat applications made accessible to users earlier this year. These comprise mobile apps for iOS, Android and BlackBerry platforms to facilitate users to chat on the go, it added.
