You know how sometimes when you are using Instagram and have to text someone but have to switch to WhatsApp because Insta chat is kind of limiting? Yeah, well, Facebook has plans to fix that.
According to the New York Times, Facebook is planning on merging Instagram, messenger and WhatsApp by letting their users message across all services.
This would mean that all of Facebook’s social media websites would get integrated for the very first time.
According to the report, the individual services would still remain as standalone apps but Facebook would create a new way for the users to communicate across them.
Following the changes, Facebook users would only be able to send encrypted messages to someone with a WhatsApp account, the report adds.
Speaking to CNBC, a Facebook spokesperson said:
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.
Well, for better or worse, the change will come. So we will just have to wait and see how quickly we can get used to it.
