The updated interface of Facebook Messenger will display “few recent messages” on the screen’s top while adding a “Favorites section” featuring people whom the messages have been sent frequently. There will also be an “Active Now section” that will display the people available online.
 
Moreover, it has been reported that:
“Messenger says that the new redesign is an update ‘aimed to make Messenger simpler to use by presenting more relevant information.’ The Messenger app now also includes a search bar at the top of the screen which will show results same as the Facebook mobile search”.
 
The Messenger team announced the redesign through a blog post, by saying:
"Up until now, most inbox experiences haven't kept up with the new ways people connect. So, we've been thinking about how we can make it simpler and easier to find what you want to start a conversation."
