In a step within Facebook’s efforts to make its applications work with each other in a way that makes it easier for the user, the blue site announced, yesterday, Thursday, the launch of a feature that allows participation in group conversations, including users from the “Messenger” and “Instagram” platforms.
To take advantage of this feature, the subscriber must choose to activate it between the “Messenger” and “Instagram” applications and choose to conduct group chats. According to Facebook, “more than 70% of eligible people on Instagram have updated (their choice) to the new Messenger experience.”
The famous site also revealed other features, in addition to group messaging across applications, including the feature of opinion polls, which will be added to group conversations.
In this way, polls are useful and enjoyable for users of Facebook applications, as they allow, for example, a group of friends to put forward an idea or a set of options, for participants to vote on and choose among them.
Last October, Facebook launched the cross-talk service for the “Instagram” and “Messenger” applications, as it allowed for the first time, at the time, the user of either application to have a conversation with a friend on the other application.
As last November, Facebook launched the “ephemeral messages” service on the “Messenger” and “Instagram” platforms. This service would automatically delete all messages, photos and videos in conversations, after viewing them by the recipient, after a period of time.
