Facebook is continuing its plan of convergence of its various services and applications. Messenger thus changes its logo to stick a little more to that of Instagram. There are also some new features in the customization of conversations.
2020 is the year of convergence for Facebook, which wants to create a synergy between these different services that are Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.
Then there was theMessenger integration into Instagram which allows us to quickly converse with our Facebook friends from the social network of photos and videos.
To mark this merger of services, what better than a new logo to display the integration of Messenger with Instagram?
Messenger’s new logo borrows colors from Instagram’s.
New themes and reactions to personalize conversations
The arrival of the new Messenger logo is not the only novelty offered by the messaging application.
Facebook is indeed integrating new features in terms of the personalization of our conversations.
Messenger integrates new themes, reactions and stickers in the mobile application.
First of all, there are new themes to make each conversation unique. We can therefore choose new wallpapers in a way for each of our conversations.
Messenger also adds new reactions that can be added to a specific message. Do you know when we leave our finger on a message we have received and can react with an emoji? Many new reaction emojis are added.
Finally, for sticker lovers or “stickers” we have new stickers using a selfie that we made.
All these new features are being rolled out gradually through an update of the application for Android and Apple iOS devices.
