You might finally be able to chat with Facebook friends without Messenger

The unreleased feature of the original Facebook app has been discovered by this user.

"Facebook is bringing the Chats back to the app for preparing integrated messaging", Jane wrote.

Back in the day, Facebook Messenger was built directly into the main Facebook app. "We do not have any additional details to share at this time". She notes in a separate tweet that the Messenger and Facebook apps serve different markets, so Facebook will likely continue offering the Messenger app to people who are only looking for chat functionality.

This all tracks with recent news that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to roll Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger into a single platform. A tap on the messenger icon will provide the list of friends you chatted with on Facebook, to send/reply messages all you have to do is tap...you already know what to do. The app is being redesigned by the developers and they are experimenting with the new features of the app.

Are Rey’s Parents in the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer?
We saw in The Last Jedi that Yoda returned as an unusually powerful Force ghost who could even control the elements. Luke also tells Rey that "we have passed on all the knowledge" and that the fight against evil is now hers.

Messenger became separated from Facebook's main app back in 2011, and frankly, from a user perspective, I never liked the move. The end result is so that users might use only one of Facebook's properties to communicate with others within the same ecosystem.

It's also one of the few features that could come out of this app unification that users actually seem excited about. And, given all the bad press following Facebook's seemingly never-ending series of scandals, lumping all these apps together might be a ploy at keeping users locked in and engaged.

"We are testing ways to improve the messaging experience for people within the Facebook app. Messenger remains a feature-rich, stand-alone messaging app with over a billion people using it monthly to connect with the people and businesses they care about most".
