I realize that my answer was not what you were hoping for but is an honest and accurate answer. Please don't "shoot the messenger" and not rate me or give me a poor rating because you don't like the answer. As an independent contractor for just answer, I do not receive credit for my answer and I am not compensated in any way without a rating of at least 3 stars. You can provide a rating by clicking on the stars and then clicking on submit. Chrome Books use a different Operating System than Windows computers. Although there are many apps available for Chromebooks, Messenger is not one of them at this time. It is possible that at some point in the future they will develop a Chromebook Messenger App.
