Facebook 'plans' to bring chat back into main app

Facebook messenger Facebook will soon let you chat in the Facebook app

What do you think about the possibility of Facebook adopting some of the features found on the Messenger app?

App researcher Jane Manchun Wong spotted Facebook testing the feature which takes you to a new "chats" section when you press the Messenger icon, rather than telling you to download yet another bloated app for your social fix.

Of course, there are some benefits to this, and using the Messenger app without downloading the Facebook app (in case you don't have an account) is one of them. however, it does not make any sense.

Way back in 2011, Facebook rolled out a standalone app for Messenger, though it still continued letting people chat in the main Facebook app for some time after that.

It would appear that Facebook's separate app for messaging your Facebook friends called Messenger, is going to go back to the main Facebook app.

Australia's PM Scott Morrison expected to call federal election today
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called for general elections on May 18, local media reported Thursday. And that's why there is so much at stake at this election.

Considering this controversial plan that's sending shivers down the spine of privacy advocates while no doubt also facing scrutiny from regulatory bodies around the world, it's certainly not surprising to hear the main Facebook mobile app could regain its messaging functionality before long. "To give message reactions, make a call, send photos, etc., you'd still have to open the Messenger app".

It means Instagram users can people on WhatsApp and vice versa. In fact, it is reported that Zuckerberg is pushing to integrate the services via unification as early as the end of this year or early 2020.

Even if the apps become united in terms of infrastructure, they'll each still operate separately, per the Times. Just like in WhatsApp, all three apps will support end-to-end encryption.

Until 2014, Facebook users were able to send and receive Facebook messages in the primary app. There's a lot more we need to figure out.
