Sometimes, you make a decision, and several years later you look back upon that instant and think: Wait, why the blaze did I do that?
Now, Facebook appears to be suffering something of the kind. Harmonizing to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong( via The Verge ), the company is testing the possibility of producing Facebook words back into Facebook’s prime mobile app.
In the test account Wong has distinguished, the Messenger button appears in the top liberty, and instead of taking “youve got to” Messenger, the app, it opens a section called “Chats” inside the Facebook app. The built-in messaging app gives exclusively basic functionality, while for some boosted pieces — like lending reactions to messages, drawing announcements or mailing photos — you still need to go through the Messenger app.
Messenger grew kept separate from Facebook’s central app back in 2011, and frankly, from a used position, I never liked the move. To me, Messenger was always inextricably linked to Facebook, and “ve had to” download it as a separate app is besetting.
In January 2019, a report from the New York Times said Facebook is looking to integrate all of its messaging stages, including Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, into one. Perhaps integrating the Messenger and Facebook mobile apps is the first step towards that goal.
This likely does not planned the end of Messenger and the bundling of everything into one ogre app. The NYT ‘s report claimed Facebook is looking to keep the services distinct, while mixing the data in the back end. Facebook supposedly expects to integrate these services by 2020.
