Facebook and Instagram begin to merge their messaging services

The Instagram mobile application has been updated and has added a new function with which it allows its users to send and receive chat messages with users of the social network Facebook through its Messenger app, as part of the plans to integrate the messaging services of Facebook.

Last year it was announced that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg planned unification of the messaging structure of all the company's products: Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp and that the company was also working to ensure that the chats were end-to-end encrypted.

Now, as reported by 'The Verge', Instagram has begun to spread a new update of its application over the weekend that shows a notice when opening warning of the arrival of "a new form of messages to Instagram", with aesthetic news like a new design, emojis to react and swipe responses.

However, the main novelty of the update is that Instagram now allows you to chat with people through your Facebook account through the messaging application of the social network, Messenger.

Users who choose to update and access Instagram direct messages see how the Instagram logo changes to Messenger's, as well as the design. At the moment, it is still not possible to write to Instagram accounts from Facebook. The new feature has started to appear to users of the Instagram application for Android and iOS mobile systems.
