A lot of Android texting apps didn't keep up with the evolution of messaging, so we felt like we truly had to make Messenger the best SMS client for Android. As a result, in addition to having a fully integrated app for all your messaging, 
you're now able to send voice clips, stickers, and even share your location over SMS on top of standard texting features. You will now also enjoy all the things you've come to love about Messenger for all your messages, including chat heads and more.

- Firstly go to your settings
Select “SMS”and turn on “Default .SMS App” 
 This will ensure all your SMS conversations appear in Messenger as purple threads, alongside your blue Facebook chats.
but note that Normal SMS charges will be applied on any SMS sent.
