Facebook planning to bring chat back into main app

15 April 2019

The feature is now being tested, and presumably if all goes well, Facebook and Messenger will get back together, allowing users to send messages from within Facebook. "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".

Facebook is integrating its Messenger app into its eponymous social media app.

Security researcher Jane Manchun Wong posted screenshots of the upcoming integration in action.

As per his claims, users won't be able to send photos, or make voice calls and video calls through the native mobile app.

Facebook was hit by a similar outage back in March 14, 2019.

When Facebook moved Messenger out of the main Facebook app, lots fumed.

Chevron pumped up over $50bn acquisition of Anadarko
With around 1.5 billion barrels of proved reserves, Anadarko will significantly augment Chevron's already strong shale operations. Following the transaction announcement, Anadarko's shares surged more than 30 percent in pre-market trade on the NYSE on Friday.

It's possible that rolling chat back into the main Facebook app is part of this effort, though it's not clear if or when it will roll out to the general public. Besides, the company also plans to unify WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram messaging apps and will be adding end-to-end encryption to avoid privacy breaches. Now, nearly 5 years later, as Facebook prepares to integrate WhatsApp and Instagram into a singular platform, the feature seems to be making its return.

Users took to Twitter to raise concerns over their inability to access the Mark Zuckerberg-owned sites and apps shortly after 2pm on Sunday.

This likely does not mean the end of Messenger and the bundling of everything into one monster app. The UI bears resemblance with Facebook Messenger's white redesign, which was made widely available at the beginning of this year.

Facebook has yet to comment. They released standalone apps for Android and iOS in 2011 and went on for several years piling features to it to the point where it became bloated. "We do not have any additional details to share at this time".

Now, Facebook appears to be experiencing something of the sort.
