"With a billion people using Messenger every month, our team spends countless hours working on improving the way you communicate with your friends and family," Facebook explains. "One of the ways we try to improve is by introducing rich features such as video or voice calls, and Messenger bots, using old versions of the application makes the experience not the best or does not directly work. 
We ask those who have old versions to update them so they can enjoy the fantastic features offered by Messenger.
