Facebook is standardizing its communication channels. The Messenger will be integrated into the Instagram app in the future. The direct message symbol is replaced by the blue speech bubble. In addition, more emoji reactions and colors should be available for the chats.
Like the magazine The Verge reported, the possibility of reaching friends on Facebook via Instagram has also been announced. Apparently that doesn’t work yet. The integration was not communicated directly by Facebook, the editors of the portal received an update of the app in which the changes appear.
Last year, Facebook announced that it wanted to link its chat services. These should then be end-to-end encrypted like WhatsApp.
