Although user can use it to receive and send messages, but users still need to open the standalone Messenger app to send photos, send message reactions or make calls.
In January, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ordered developers to rebuild the company's messaging services "at their most basic levels" so that they all work the same way.
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.
A few years ago, Facebook dropped the standalone Facebook App's messaging feature to create a standalone "Facebook Messenger" app.
Wong posted another tweet noting that the Chats section only contains a limited selection of Messenger's features. The change uses the existing Messenger button in the main Facebook app, but instead of opening Messenger, it simply opens up a new "Chats" section. "We do not have any additional details to share at this time". 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.
The only reason Facebook is implementing the Chat function to the native Facebook app is to provide users a new platform to connect with their friends.
"We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private", a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. How do I engage other users across all three apps without exposing my phone number, personal data, and other vital information? Or it could be trying to better balance on-platform engagement across the two apps - while Messenger use has been rising, engagement within Facebook's main app has, reportedly, been in decline.
