Messenger is to Return to the Facebook Mobile App

Meta is analyzing approaches to bring uniformity to both apps

To facilitate seamless communication between its 2 billion active users, Facebook is introducing a new feature allowing people to view their messages from Messenger within the Facebook mobile app. This idea was announced via Tom Alison’s blog post.

Alison noted that the corporation is “testing the ability for people to access their Messenger inbox within the Facebook app.” Furthermore, it plans to extend this experience in the upcoming months.

In 2011, Messenger was introduced as a part of Facebook’s functionality before becoming an independent app in 2014. With its newfound independence came the ability to share locations and handle voice calls. But that wasn’t all — it also enabled peer-to-peer payments.

For the past 10 years, Messenger has been continuously updated with a plethora of new features such as encrypted messages, custom emojis, and video chats. Facebook is also constantly improving its multi-app communication capabilities between Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram. Users on both Instagram and Messenger can now send direct messages to each other.

Meta experienced great success with community chats, its conversation feature that debuted on Facebook Groups in 2022. It seeks to incorporate more messaging functionalities within the platform to make it simpler for people to communicate and stay connected.
