Facebook merges Messenger with direct message of Instagram, now chat will be together

There were reports for a long time about Facebook that it is planning to merge WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram soon. However, according to the latest news, Facebook has merged Messenger with the director message service of the photo sharing app Instagram. According to the information revealed, on Wednesday, Instagram started rolling out the option to connect Instagram direct messages with Messenger. After choosing this option, users will be able to send messages on Instagram via Facebook Messenger, while sending messages on the Messenger via Instagram’s direct message.

Facebook announced this through its blog post. Some users see this feature as soon as the app is opened. However, users who do not want to merge their Instagram’s Direct Messages with Messenger can also ignore this option. At the same time, if the user chooses this update, then their Instagram messaging experience will be very similar to the messenger after the update. That is, with the new update, Instagram users can use features such as message forwarding and chat customization. In chat customization, users can change the color etc. of their chat and can give their chat a nickname.

Facebook says that these features will first be seen on Instagram and after that they can be seen on Messenger.

After this merger, people on one platform can be contacted using one platform without even downloading a separate app. However, calls and messages made from Instagram to Instagram will only be present in the Instagram app.

In early 2019, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg mentioned end-to-end encryption, an important benefit of merging Facebook’s messaging platforms. Let me tell you, WhatsApp and Messenger support end-to-end encryption, but this support is not currently introduced in Instagram. Facebook did not mention encryption, giving information about this update.
