Facebook Integrate Messenger to the Main Facebook App

Facebook Integrate Messenger to the Main Facebook App

Facebook might put the Messenger's chats back into its main social media app. Right now, if you want to chat via Facebook on mobile, the app will immediately switch you over to Messenger or prompt you to download it if you don't have it already. Now, it's basically been accepted as normal.

A researcher digging through Facebook's code has found suggestions that it is now considering bringing it back into the fold. "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 most honest answer came from Scarlett Johansson: "I think like every actor you're just like, 'Great, I get more screen time'". Out of context, this doesn't make much sense, but now we know what she meant.


Wong posted another tweet noting that the Chats section only contains a limited selection of Messenger's features. Quickly after that, the option to have conversations with friends via Chat was completely removed from the Facebook app. Speculation is that Messenger will find its way back into Facebook for the general public, but will also still exist as a standalone app, perhaps for business users. The feature can be used to send and receive messages, however, users will still need to open the standalone Messenger app to make calls, send photos, or send message reactions. So while chat could be returning to the main Facebook app, Messenger will still operate as its own messaging platform.

So far, the Chats feature doesn't allow users to perform more advanced tasks, like reacting to messages, making calls or sending images. 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 UI bears resemblance with Facebook Messenger's white redesign, which was made widely available at the beginning of this year.

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

"We are testing ways to improve the messaging experience for people within the Facebook app", a representative said. They will no longer have to install a new app altogether to read their messages.
