Facebook Messenger might be returning to the main Facebook app

Facebook Messenger might be returning to the main Facebook app”

Evidence of the change has been discovered in recent code. A tap on the messenger icon will provide the list of friends you chatted with on Facebook, to send/reply messages all you have to do is tap...you already know what to do. According to a report in Engadget on Friday, App researcher Jane Manchun Wong has spotted the feature in the works.

He added that "tens of millions" of Android users who use Messenger as their default app would benefit from having end-to-end encryption enabled as a default.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg confirmed the company has plans to do so but commented that it will not happen any time soon.

Of course, this would not be the first time Facebook used Messenger's features as such. Since that time, Facebook acquired WhatsApp and is now preparing to integrate chat and messaging functions across the two services, as well as with Instagram. Messenger is in second place with 1.3 billion+ users.

And now it seems Facebook is finally starting to realize that, too.

It's possible that rolling chat back into the main Facebook app is part of this effort, though it isn't clear if or when it will roll out to the general public. But then Facebook made a decision to remove the messaging feature from the app and forced users to use the dedicated Facebook Messenger app to send and receive Facebook messages. The feature was previously removed back in 2014. You'll still need to install the latter for things like voice and video calling, posting reactions, and even sending photos.

Would you be happy to see Messenger brought back to the main Facebook app?
