Facebook Started Integrating Messenger Chats on Instagram in New Update


As we all know that 3 popular chat & messaging app WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram belongs to Facebook so, we expect integration between them sooner or later. CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg already announced last year that they are planning to merge or integrate WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram and seems like they rolling out the update.

Instagram, Messenger and Whatsapp is used by millions of active users on daily period across the world. Facebook recently launched new update on Instagram in which Instagram In-App messaging feature is merged with Facebook Messenger app. This new update on Instagram is already started rolling out specially for Indian users.

Once you open Instagram app then there will be one pop-up message appears informing about this new update. In this Pop-Up message there is brief details about this new update which says the new integration features. Users need to click on Update button to use this new integration feature on this app. In this update there are 4 new updates/features which includes new colorful look for chats, emoji reactions, swipe to reply messages and chat with facebook friends as well without living the app.

Once you update this app then not all features are directly available in it. Yes, after this update you won’t be able to chat with facebook friends directly because it’s not available yet.

After updating the Instagram app the DM icon will change to messenger icon. The chat box in Instagram also looks colorful with blue and purple color used for sender’s message. Facebook Messenger allows you to change color for different chat in this app.

There isn’t any official announcement of this feature yet so, we can say that Facebook is still testing this Instagram and messenger integration. But, Facebook is already working on their plan to unify Messenger, Whatsapp and Instagram app. All three apps will be standalone app so, for example you don’t need to leave Instagram app if you want to talk with facebook friends. Users can easily interact with messenger friends directly from Instagram.

Messenger rooms is recently launched by Facebook which is a large group video calls feature. Facebook already integreated messenger rooms with WhatsApp web and confirmed integrating Messenger rooms shortcut to Instagram and WhatsApp. Hope to see such more integration update and features in these apps.
