April 30 (Reuters) – Facebook Inc’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said on Tuesday the social media company is working on “LightSpeed” in order to make its Messenger app smaller in size and faster.

Facebook would also introduce Messenger for Mac and Windows, Zuckerberg said in an event. Zuckerberg also said Facebook would launch a new feature called “Product Catalog” for WhatsApp Business.

The changes offered early signs of how Zuckerberg plans to change his advertising-driven company as it tries to move past privacy scandals and scrutiny of its targeted advertising.
