It also announced it was stopping support for Facebook for Windows Phone.If you find you are suddenly unable to run the app, Facebook suggests updating to the latest version, or migrating to Facebook Lite, a pared down version of the platform.Critics have claimed that the apps available on Windows phones pale in comparison to their i OS and Android counterparts.For example, Windows does not support Citymapper Customers were informed of the change by an email from Facebook.'Thank you for choosing to use Messenger,' the email reads.'We regret to inform you that at the end of March, the app version you're using is no longer supported and you can not send and receive messages.'To continue to send and receive messages from Facebook on your phone, update your Facebook app to the latest version.'Phones affected by the withdrawal include the Microsoft Lumia 640, 640 XL and the Lumia 535.The full list of devices about to lose support from Facebook includes: v55 of the Facebook app and Messenger v10 on Android, Facebook for i Pad v26, Messenger v8 for i OS and Facebook for i OS released in 2011, Facebook for Windows Phone, Messenger for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, and Facebook for Windows 8 and the 8.1 desktop app.I have been using my Lumia 535 for three months now.

If this solved your issue, be sure to mark the answer as accepted (by clicking the green checkmark).

If that's the case, you should be able to access Facebook (including the Messenger functionality) through the browser.

Alternatively, the Lumia 535 should be eligible for upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile, which would let you use the new Messenger Beta app that doesn't seem to have a RAM requirement.
