Facebook announced the launch of a feature that allows the user to participate in group conversations, including users from the “Messenger” and “Instagram” platforms, in a step within the giant company’s efforts to make its applications work with each other in a way that is easier for the user.
Facebook also revealed other features, in addition to group messaging across applications, including the feature of polls, which will be added to group conversations. The opinion polls in this way are useful and enjoyable for users of the “Facebook” applications, as it allows, 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.
In October 2020, Facebook launched the cross-talk service for the Instagram and Messenger applications, allowing for the first time, at that time, a user of either application to have a conversation with a friend on the other application. Last November, Facebook launched ephemeral messages on Messenger and Instagram as well.
This service would automatically delete all messages, photos and videos in conversations, after viewing them by the recipient, after a period of time.
