Messenger May Be Finally Coming Back to Facebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has framed the messaging tool merger as an added convenience for users

In another tweet, she then said that the chat features that might appear in the Facebook app will not be the same with those of the Messenger app.

The Messenger app icon would still remain, but instead of a standalone app, it would direct the users to the messages inside the main Facebook app. If Facebook does integrate, it is likely to be rolled out to all users by early 2020 when the company is expected to unify its messaging services.

Jane Manchun Wong, who's a code investigator, has found some hints that show that it might happen. "To give message reactions, make a call, send photos, etc, you'd still have to open the Messenger app".

But it's not all done, it could change in time.it's possible for Facebook to take it slow, and, in time, to bring all of the features back to the original app, but that's not for sure.

Luke Walton Hired As Next Sacramento Kings Head Coach
Walton has been hired to coach the Sacramento Kings , who recently fired head coach Dave Joerger after three seasons. Multiple reports suggest that Walton, 39, is on the verge of becoming the next head coach of the Sacramento Kings.

This all tracks with recent news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to roll Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger into a single platform. Quickly after that, the option to have conversations with friends via Chat was completely removed from the Facebook app. It's not clear what that means just yet, but some have speculated that the company will merge the messaging services of Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp into one. If Facebook unites the three apps, each platform would have the end-to-end encryption that WhatsApp now has, which "protects messages from being viewed by anyone except the participants in a conversation", according to the Times.

You may remember that Facebook spurned off Messenger way back in 2011 where it was originally called Facebook Chat. The company recently added a dark-mode to the messenger app on iOS to improve its usability at night. This would make a great emphasis on Facebook's move towards unification which is clearly what we could expect in coming months if the tech giant decides to go forward with it.

Facebook has yet to comment. "We do not have any additional details to share at this time".
