Messenger is currently being tested within the Facebook app


Today, Facebook released a new statement about its performance this first quarter of the year. Besides talking about AI algorithm discovery, creators and monetization, the company also shared that it may bring back the Messenger app into Facebook like before.

In case you didn't know, Messenger was once part of Facebook without having to install it as an extra app. But that was about nine years ago, and Facebook could actually bring it back again. It was written in its newsroom, which stated that the company wants it "to be easy and convenient for people to connect and share, whether in the Messenger app or directly within Facebook".

While Facebook didn't really say why, the company said that over 140 billion messages have been sent on Messenger every day. Facebook is also currently "testing the ability for people to access their Messenger inbox within the Facebook app" which the test could expand soon. In addition, they reported that Community Chats have increased by 50% as of December 2022.

So while Facebook is testing out, the development team will continue to look and build more ways to integrate messaging features on Facebook. If you want to read the full details, you can visit the official Facebook newsroom here.
