Facebook announces the integration of Messenger and Instagram messages
Facebook announced that it will start merging Messenger chat messages with Instagram, as it indicated that it will start using Messenger's messaging service in the Instagram photo and video sharing application, which is the first major step in its plan to link messages across its suite of applications.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg first announced his vision to integrate the messaging feature through apps early last year. The company aims to eventually integrate WhatsApp with Messenger and Instagram, and extend full encryption across the three services. The company stated that the goal of this is to reach To the point where we build something once, then it works across all apps, so we don't have to repeat the same thing multiple times.
She said that this service allows users of each service to find video calls with contacts on the other end, send messages to them and stop them without the need to download both applications.
In addition to the addition of some custom emoji and features that were the mainstay of Messenger, but were not previously available in the simple messaging service of Instagram.
After updating the applications from users, if they agree to the update, the Instagram messaging icon will change to the Messenger logo, and as is the case in Messenger, Instagram users will be able to do so with a maximum of 5 people at a time.
The initial launch of the service has already started on Wednesday in a few countries as a pilot and will soon expand and launch internationally.
