Users of Facebook at Work now have their own Messenger-style messaging application, as Work Chat is available for Android via Google Play.

Facebook told TechCrunch an iOS version of Work Chat is being developed, adding that the launch date for the freemium version of Facebook at Work would likely be pushed back into 2016, instead of toward the end of this year.

Work Chat offers many of the same features as Messenger, including group chat, chat heads, the ability to include photos and videos in messages, free voice calling, the ability to turn off notifications and, yes, even stickers.

The description of Work Chat in Google Play reads:

Work Chat is the messaging app for Facebook at Work. Right now, Facebook at Work and Work Chat are only available to some companies, and you need a work account to use them.
