Cross-app communication for Messenger and Instagram

─ News ─

Facebook will soon begin rolling out new functionality that will allow Instagram and Messenger users to communicate across apps, and will also bring a host of Messenger-inspired features to the Instagram inbox.

The new messaging experience will offer users the ability to change their chat colour, react with any emoji, watch videos together, set messages to disappear and more.

To support this move, Facebook has also added a new consumer-facing tool called ‘Accounts Center’, which gives users the ability to manage their connected experiences across Facebook-owned apps.
