Beta Version | Start the process of adding WhatsApp to Facebook Messenger

Facebook is working on consolidating all messaging apps, including Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.

Now it seems to be working fast and the new beta version of Facebook Messenger has added WhatsApp references.

This is probably the earliest part of the long process of combining WhatsApp and FB Messenger.

The obvious difference between the two messaging apps is that the chat in WhatsApp is stored in the device and is equipped with end-to-end encryption while there are no ads.

That's why the WhatsApp account can currently only be used on one device at a time.

The references that are currently appearing in Facebook Messenger are related to the management of messages and services.

Other elements are also cited that will help Facebook Messenger understand the details of WhatsApp users such as blocking, push notifications from WhatsApp and chatter details.

Message content will not be shared with Facebook servers and cross-chat between Messenger and WhatsApp will require the introduction of a new protocol in Messenger.

It is not yet clear what type of server Facebook will use to collect data from all apps across devices, as Facebook Messenger now allows users to send or receive messages from multiple devices at the same time.

This is just the beginning, so there are likely to be significant changes going forward....
