Facebook supposedly bringing back in-built messaging feature

12 April 2019 4

Social media giant Facebook has won many hearts with interesting new features while on the same side, the platform has a history of pissing its customer base and one such incident was when Facebook removed the ability of integrated chatting feature. Facebook once offered built-in messaging feature though later it turned it into a dedicated app and removed the in-built messaging, thus forcing it’s customer base to download the independent Facebook Messenger app.

Now in the latest development, Facebook seems to be reverting that back. As shared by an app researcher Jane Manchun, who discovered how Facebook has an underlying feature of messaging that seems to be under development. The feature doesn’t currently seem to offer image share, or voice calls or may that be reactions, though the basics of a messaging app i.e. messaging its self seem to be there.


While there are no words on whether it would remain the same or it’s due to the development phase, whatever the case might be, this is surely a great step indeed, knowing how Facebook Messenger is over cluttered with features that most people don’t even know they exist.

While Facebook Messenger has over 1.3 billion monthly users, there are chances that Facebook won’t scrap the messenger app, which suggests that in-built Facebook messaging might offer a way out for those who use Facebook Messenger for solely these purposes.

Yes, the messenger app does have its issues, especially on the UI front. But then bringing back the in-built messaging feature sounds a bit odd when the app already has more than a billion active users.
