Facebook could be putting Messenger back into its main social media application. The function is currently in the testing phase and was detected by Jane Manchun Wong investigator of the application, which would mean that you could use a single application to access the social networking platform and the messaging service. The change uses the existing Messenger button in the Facebook application, but takes it directly to your messages instead of opening the Messenger application separately.
Messenger was first launched as a stand-alone application in 2011, and in 2014 Facebook removed its functionality from its application of the same name. Half a decade later, while Facebook is preparing to integrate its messaging services in Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, the functionality seems to be returning.
As part of its messaging integration plans, Facebook intends that the individual application of each service continue to exist. Wong speculates that the same applies to the Messenger application, which he believes will be maintained to serve a different audience than the main Facebook application.
Wong screenshots of the functionality show the white redesign proposed by Facebook for the application, which was first seen in early March. The interface faithfully reflects the white redesign of Facebook Messenger, which became widely available earlier this year. It is not clear when the new integration or Messaging interface will be available.
