Facebook will likely allow communication between Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp soon. It has been reported for some time that the social media giant Messenger will integrate with WhatsApp, but the latest reports do not speak of any kind of integration, it is more like the chat support between the two messaging applications.
According to a WAbetainfo, Facebook is working to allow communication between Messenger and WhatsApp. This means that once the feature is launched, Facebook Messenger will be able to communicate with WhatsApp. The WhatsApp resource tracker reported that informant Alexandra Paluzzi informed the site for the first time about the possible integration between Facebook and WhatsApp.
“This is not really an integration of the Facebook service on Instagram, but recently @ Alex193a warned me about integrating WhatsApp into Facebook Messenger, including some important tracks! In particular, we are talking about the ability to communicate with a user using another Facebook application, in this case between two users using WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Some important references were found about this integration: Facebook creates some tables in a local database to manage messages and services with other WhatsApp users ”, said the WAbetainfo report.
The WhatsApp feature tracker states that if the feature is implemented, Facebook will find out if a WhatsApp contact has been blocked, ‘sounds of push notifications, the details of a chat (including certain information such as the contact’s phone number) , a message counter) when the chat is archived ..), but not the content, members of a specific group, and profile photos for the contact. “
The report also says that Facebook is not collecting messages from users on WhatsApp, but will likely acquire the Signal protocol to encrypt and decrypt messages, the feature currently used by WhatsApp. There is no confirmation as to whether Facebook will upload the acquired database to its servers or not.
The tracker also reports that it is not yet known whether users will have the option to disable WhatsApp integration with Facebook or Instagram. After the feature is officially launched, you can only confirm that users will have the option to disable or enable inter-chat communication.
It is important to note that the feature is in development and all specified features may also be destroyed before the official launch.
