Facebook chats returning to main social network application… Insider and blogger Jane Wong reported that Facebook returns the chat functionality to the main mobile application. In 2014, the social network transferred the correspondence to a separate service Facebook Messenger.
The screenshots show the dialog box, the contact list and the chat interface. According to Wong, only basic functionality is provided, and calls, sending photos and reactions are available only in Messenger.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed testing in-app chat:
We are testing various ways to improve messaging in a Facebook application. Messenger remains a multifunctional autonomous service, which is used monthly by over a billion people to connect with people and organizations.
In March, the head of the social network, Mark Zuckerberg, announced asingle platform for communication between Facebook products: WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram Direct. In the future, users will be able to write to a friend from one service to another.
