Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, plans to integrate messaging services — WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger — affirming his control over the company’s extensive divisions. This Facebook update comes at a time when its business has been hit by the recent scandals.
The move requires thousands of Facebook employees to reconfigure how WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger function at their most basic levels. While all three services will continue operating as stand-alone apps, their underlying messaging set up will be unified. Facebook is still in the early stages of the work and plans to complete it by the end of this year or in early 2020.
In a statement related to the new Facebook update, Facebook said it wanted to “Build the best messaging experiences we can and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private. We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks.”
Unifying the infrastructure for WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger is technically challenging as they all work differently. We will have to wait and see how this new Facebook update intends to bring all three together.
