Facebook Integrate Messenger to the Main Facebook App

Facebook's Looking to Bring Messaging Back into the Main App

After spinning it off the main Facebook app in 2014, Facebook might put Messenger back in. The company has been spotted testing the return of Messenger in the main Facebook app.

As per a report by The Verge, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong saw a feature now in testing which integrates Messenger with the native Facebook app under a new "Chats" section. She notes in a separate tweet that the Messenger and Facebook apps serve different markets, so Facebook will likely continue offering the Messenger app to people who are only looking for chat functionality. That gave Facebook a whole new, multi-million (now billion) user platform, but the company was largely criticized for the play, and the Messenger app was savaged by reviewers as a result. We'll see what happens from here, but this could very well be the first step toward larger chat integration for Facebook. That the company is experimenting in this way doesn't necessarily guarantee that this change will ultimately make its way into ordinary users' apps but product updates are frequently leaked this way before they're officially announced. Right now, if you want to chat via Facebook on mobile, the app will immediately switch you over to Messenger or prompt you to download it if you don't have it already. The New York Times cited sources within Facebook as saying that while the services will remain as their own apps, the tech behind all three will be unified. The UI bears resemblance with Facebook Messenger's white redesign, which was made widely available at the beginning of this year.

The rationale behind the Messenger reintegration isn't immediately clear, and a Facebook spokesperson didn't respond to Business Insider's request for comment, .

Now, Facebook appears to be experiencing something of the sort. They released standalone apps for Android and iOS in 2011 and went on for several years piling features to it to the point where it became bloated.
