Facebook is reportedly working to integrate its three messaging platforms, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram. Hold on! These apps will not merge completely and will continue working as standalone apps. But Facebook wants to allow users to use any of these platforms without navigating the app. In my point of view, Facebook will integrate these apps in such a way that if a user is using any of these apps, h/she can use the remaining two apps without leaving the previous app.
Or we can say that Facebook will interlink these three apps so that all users can use it easily, without leaving any. In order to do this, a huge amount of reconfiguration is needed to be done.
Facebook to Integrate Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram to Give Ease its users
The Facebook’s owner, Mark Zuckerberg aimed that all three apps should incorporate end-to-end encryption once the integration is complete in late 2019 or early 2020. Currently, only WhatsApp has end-to-end encryption on by default for all conversations. However, Messenger allows you to choose whether you want end-to-end encrypted chats or not.
Facebook is taking this step, most probably, as the WhatsApp and Instagram are getting more popular as compared to Messenger. Just as recently, WhatsApp has left Facebook behind and became the most popular App among people. Over the period of 24 months, WhatsApp has grown 30 percent, compared to just 20 % and 15% growth for Facebook and Facebook Messenger respectively.
Considering these figures we may say that integrating these three apps will help Facebook to boost up this profit. As the number of users in all apps many exceed. Let’s see when Facebook will actually implement this feature. But it is quite sure that it will launch at the end of this year or maybe at the start of next year.
