Facebook is Considering Bringing Back Messenger Chats to Main App

If Facebook reintegrated messaging into the main app, it would be an about-turn for the company, which in 2014 insisted that to keep using Messenger on a mobile device, it would be mandatory for users to download the standalone app.

"Facebook's Messenger app icon would remain but instead of launching a standalone app, it would open Facebook and take you directly to a section called Chats", the report claimed. She notes in a separate tweet that the Messenger and Facebook apps serve different markets, so Facebook will likely continue offering the Messenger app to people who are only looking for chat functionality.

Jane Manchun Wong has shared everything on the microblogging website, Twitter through his official Twitter handle. Speculation is that Messenger will find its way back into Facebook for the general public, but will also still exist as a standalone app, perhaps for business users.

Despite the addition of LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers roster, the team was still a failure as they missed the playoffs. Johnson offered no indication that he was on the brink of leaving the team, sources said .

It's what might be happening with Messenger, though, that's most intriguing, as a New York Times report from January said that Facebook would soon be unifying Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp through the company's "underlying technical infrastructure" for security purposes. Quickly after that, the option to have conversations with friends via Chat was completely removed from the Facebook app. But after 5 years, as the social media giant organizes to integrate its messaging services across Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger functionality appears to be returning. The feature is still in its primary stage as the users can send and receive chat messages only but they can't post videos, audio, or photos, etc. The interface seems to resemble the redesign Messenger received back in May 2018, which only became widely available earlier this year.

Facebook has yet to comment. They will no longer have to install a new app altogether to read their messages. "We do not have any additional details to share at this time".
