Facebook begins integrating Instagram and Messenger chats

AlbertflexAlbertflex in August 16, 2020

Over the weekend, several users of iOS and Android received an update for Instagram which seems to suggest that Facebook has started integrating chats on the app with its Facebook Messenger service. Instagram users received a pop-up message which reads:

“There’s a New Way to Message on Instagram” with a list of features including a “new colorful look for your chats,” more emoji reactions, swipe-to-reply, and the big one: “chat with friends who use Facebook.”

Immediately you accept the update, the regular Direct Messaging icon at the top right corner of Instagram will instantly be changed to the Facebook Messenger logo and the colors of your messages will change too to blue and purple as you scroll. For the time being, the feature to send messages to your facebook friends from Instagram is not yet accessible.

Facebook has earlier on revealed its plan of integrating all its messenging platforms to a unified system to allow messaging accross Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp and Facebook. Remember Facebook in 2012 bought Instagram for $1 billion and went on to buy WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014.

Instagram, Facebook and what's app are owned by the same organization or Mark Z. So it's understandable if they decide to link the applications together and it is a good idea to me

Deciding to link all the messaging platforms to a unified platform will bring about an increase in data traffic and might cause lag in lesser android versions and people might get to miss out but still a great idea anyway

To some, it sound like good news that Facebook is merging all its messaging apps. But it becons on me to ask, "for what reason exactly?" Some people find it not really easy to use these apps separately going by their updated features. That already is a pointer that more people will get more confused using them merged together. Someone could be on Instagram and mistaking it for Facebook or WatsApp thereby sending a wright message to a wrong person. The merger is good for smart people but I feels for those on the opposite side of smartness. They are in for a long ride. We will be on the lookout and see how it pans out. But as for what is already on the table of expenses, the fund obtained by independence of these apps would be lost.
