Facebook begins merging Instagram and messenger chats

Facebook, the biggest social media platform begins merging instagram and messenger chats in new update according to The verge. The new feature allows user to access all messages on both apps from the same place. Last year, Facebook announced plans to connect all its messaging products together (Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp).

On August 14th, The Verge reported that on both iOS and Android devices editors noticed an update screen on Instagram mobile app showing the message “There’s a New Way to Message on Instagram” : chat with friends who use Facebook.”

To access the list of new features including a colorful look for your chats, added emoji reactions, swipe-to-reply and chat with friends on Facebook, you update the Instagram app. After update, the regular DM icon on Instagram is replaced by the Facebook messenger logo. However, by the time several editors at The verge updated the app, it was still not possible to message Facebook users from Instagram.
