So, the Interwebs have decided that all your IMs belong in one app and have announced long term plans to merge WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram.
Quite unsure about this...
https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...ging-platformsFacebook is reportedly considering a merger of its three messaging platforms WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger allowing users to send messages between the networks for the first time.
The plans are said to come directly from the Facebook chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, the New York Times has reported, and would involve rewriting the basic software of the three apps to ensure they were interoperable. A WhatsApp user would be able to, for instance, text an Instagram user for the first time without needing to switch applications.
