Facebook to reintegrate 'Messenger' in its app

  • Facebook planning to add Messenger to main app again

Facebook might put the Messenger's chats back into its main social media app. The company has been spotted testing the return of Messenger in the main Facebook app.Security researcher Jane Manchun Wong posted screenshots of the upcoming integration in action.

Software engineer Jane Manchun Wong was the first to bring the feature to light, and she's made similar discoveries in the past.

Of course, there are some benefits to this, and using the Messenger app without downloading the Facebook app (in case you don't have an account) is one of them. however, it does not make any sense.

Facebook initially had its messaging tools integrated into the main platform, but spun them out into Messenger back in 2014, controversially forcing users to download Messenger to maintain connection with their friends.

Facebook is working to interconnect its trio of app of Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram. It is not known when this update to the Facebook app will come to the general public.

If you do not have downloaded Messenger on your smartphone, the shortcut will take you to Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

So far, the Chats feature doesn't allow users to perform more advanced tasks, like reacting to messages, making calls or sending images. This means that WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram will all be found in one single app. This would make a great emphasis on Facebook's move towards unification which is clearly what we could expect in coming months if the tech giant decides to go forward with it.

Facebook has commented on the feature as per The Verge, but it seems to be a boilerplate response. "Messenger remains a feature-rich, stand-alone messaging app with over a billion people using it monthly to connect with the people and businesses they care about most".

"We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.
