Facebook might fold Messenger back into its main app

  • Facebook is planning to integrate the messenger back into its native app

Facebook is working to interconnect its trio of app of Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

Facebook is unlikely to remove its Messenger App downloads anytime soon. Now, it's basically been accepted as normal.

"Facebook is bringing the Chats back to the app for preparing integrated messaging", Jane wrote.

"We are testing ways to improve the messaging experience for people within the Facebook app. 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". The feature, according to Jane Manchun Wong, is already being tested.

This update will make use of the current Messenger button in the Facebook app, but you will now be taken to a new "Chats" section rather than opening a separate Messenger app.

This used to be the case back then before Facebook made a decision to spurn off it into a full blown dedicated app. People used it like how we used Twitter DMs and it was called Inbox where we could privately chat with people.

Wong notes that this Chats section doesn't have all of Messenger's features, only some.

Facebook is integrating its Messenger app into its eponymous social media app. That was before the company decoupled the services and over populated the Messenger app with a bunch of bloatware that no one used.

The company split it out years ago, forcing users to download an additional app to message their friends. 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. The interface seems to resemble the redesign Messenger received back in May 2018, which only became widely available earlier this year.

Facebook did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment.

In January, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ordered developers to rebuild the company's messaging services "at their most basic levels" so that they all work the same way.
