An important change which will affect millions of users worldwide realized by the company Facebook combining two of its most popular applications, the Instagram and Messenger.
Specifically, η Facebook θέλει να ενώσει τα chat των εφαρμογών της, δηλαδή να επιτρέπει στους χρήστες να στέλνουν μηνύματα τα οποία θα ανοίγουν ταυτόχρονα από το Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.
on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram are testing a feature, as reported by techcrunch, which shows notifications from all three applications in one "interface" and allows the user to toggle them.
Facebook has confirmed the existence of this feature, which is being tested:
"We are conducting a very small test, to make it even easier for users to discover and connect with the people and things they care about. We explore ways to help people switch between their Facebook accounts more easily, on Messenger and Instagram ”.
At this trial stage, for those "lucky" to have seen it, when a user clicks on their profile icon in one of three applications, then it will see all the pending notifications from the other applications as well, for example 18 notifications. When he presses there too, then it will see the characteristic red icon showing the unread alerts in each of the applications, B.C. 6 Facebook notifications, 2 Messenger notifications and 10 notifications on Intagram. Just click on each one, will go to the respective application.
All of the above belong to the Facebook family, but we have not seen WhatsApp yet.
If this is added to the company of common notifications, many users will receive constant alerts, or red numbers (showing how many alerts they have) and for some it fuels stress.
Facebook's goal is to exchange messages between Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, however the transition will be rather gradual.
For this purpose the Facebook has been changing its infrastructure for a long time, to support the connection of users who use different Facebook applications, while the whole system will be encrypted.
