You probably must have seen the new Instagram update from Facebook this morning, stating, there’s a New Way to Message on Instagram. So what’s is this new way to message on Instagram? let’s explore this feature together.
Facebook finds a new way to improve on users’ chat experience by integrating the chat systems for Instagram and Messenger.
The new update notification that pops up on my Instagram app this morning appears to have promising features that will delight Facebook and Instagram users. Judging from the new update, users should be expecting a “new colorful look for your chats,” more emoji reactions, swipe-to-reply, and most importantly: “chat with friends who use Facebook.”
If you’ve not already, go ahead and hit the update button and enjoy this new simplicity and elegant UI. Chat on Instagram are indeed more colorful than before with the send messages shifting between blue and purple as you scroll.
Ah! don’t get too excited just yet, at the moment you cant communicate to your Facebook friends through Instagram just yet. But Facebook has made clear its plans to unify the messaging platforms of its hugely popular apps to allow cross-messaging among Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
Another cool feature coming our way from Facebook is users who were on only one of its apps could connect to others using different Facebook apps. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also said he wants the system to be end-to-end encrypted.
