Facebook could merge Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram chats

Which messenger service do you use the most? Facebook, Instagram or Whatsapp? Or do you flit between all three like some sort of nomadic social butterfly?

Well soon you might not have to choose as Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, plans to integrate all three of the social network’s messaging services, The New York Times reports.

It sounds as if it would be no easy thing to do though as four people involved in the effort say it would require thousands of Facebook employees to reconfigure how WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger function at their most basic levels. While all three services will continue operating as stand-alone apps, their underlying messaging infrastructure will be unified, the people said.

This would mean there would be just one singular backend for Instagrfam users to contact WhatsApp contacts etc.

Instagram and Whatsapp is owned by Facebook

All three apps would continue to be stand alone services so Instagram will still be Instagram etc.

Facebook is still in the early stages of the work and plans to complete it by the end of this year or in early 2020, the NY Times added.

This move would allow Facebook to dominate the market – even more than they already do. For example, it would keep suers interacting through Facebook’s own apps it could potentially stop them from using rival messaging services, such as those from Apple and Google.

In a statement, Facebook said it wanted to “build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private.” It added: “We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks.”
