App and security researcher Jane Manchun Wong has discovered news that might make a lot of Facebook app users very happy: It appears Facebook is conducting limited tests to return Facebook Messenger to the main Facebook app.
Facebook already owns WhatsApp, the world's most popular chat app with over 1.5 billion users worldwide.
The current interface of the application, as well as that of the mobile version of the site, shows a button dedicated to Messenger, which opens the application or port on the Play Store, or on the App Store if it's not present in the system.
Back in 2014, the company announced that it would move the Chats away from the app and that the users would need to install the Messenger app to continue receiving messages. "We do not have any additional details to share at this time".
This does have some advantages, like the ability to use Messenger without using Facebook.
According to the latest reports, the social network giant Facebook can turn Messenger into the app that can access the social network timeline.
Google allows users to edit Microsoft Office files without converting them
This is a great update for people who want to collaborate on documents and don't all have a copy of Microsoft Office . Now Google has announced that it is adding native support for Microsoft's Word, Excel, and PowerPoint formats.
You can take a look at what the switch could potentially look like below.
Facebook could bring Messenger back to its main app as part of its strategy to merge all of its chat services into one.
"For now, this new "Chats" section seems to only contain the basic chat functionalities", Wong says in a tweet.
While now if we talk about other key features, then let me clarify that some features will remain in separate Messenger, like voice calls, sending photos, sending user location, games and reactions within sentences sent by people.
What do you think about the possibility of Facebook adopting some of the features found on the Messenger app?
