Facebook recently bought messaging app WhatsApp but we haven’t seen any sort of integration or even connection between the two. In fact, Facebook has been pushing its own Messenger, especially after opening up the platform to developers. So what does the social networking giant plan to do with WhatsApp?
Leaked images shows that the soon-to-be released Version 188.8.131.52.13 of the Facebook Android app will now include a WhatsApp icon as an option in the status actions button. These are the “like”, “comment”, “share” buttons. And when the update comes out, apparently, you’ll also have a share on WhatsApp button as well. Some users should already be seeing this in their latest update.
These are good news for those who are using both Facebook and WhatsApp for their communication needsAnd since Facebook has made messenger fun again, with all thebuilt-in apps they’ve introduced, we wonder what place WhatsApp will eventually have in their whole eco-system.
Rumors are also going around that the developers from both sides are trying to see how they can deeply integrate the two social networks. They might even be considering the ability to send messages across both Messenger and WhatsApp.
