Facebook Messenger could return to the main Facebook app

Facebook messenger Facebook will soon let you chat in the Facebook app

Those features might appear in a future update, but Wong says she believes the Messenger app and Chats "serve different markets".

After years of its users wondering why they made a separate app for messages in the first place, Facebook may move chat features back into the main app.

If you woke up this morning and thought to yourself, "Hey, it's been a minute since I last heard about Facebook security issues affecting millions of users in scary ways", then have we got some ...

While the change may be welcomed by some, app researcher Jane Manchun Wong says the "Chats" extension does not now contain all of the features present on Messenger. Are you using the Messenger app (or Facebook)?

As you can see in the screenshots Wong posted, users will be able to tap the existing Messenger button in the Facebook app and be taken to their messages directly in the app instead of that button working as it does now, which launches the individual Facebook Messenger app instead.

Right now, Chat only supports basic text and lacks many of Messenger's features, including making calls, photo sharing and reactions, though this could be because it's still in a testing phase. While Messenger became its own standalone app in 2011, Facebook eventually stripped the functionality, forcing people to interact with those annoying chat bubbles that gradually filled up your home screen, multiplying like rabbits.

A Facebook spokeswoman said that the company did not have any additional details to share at this time.
