Facebook will now let users cross-message groups between Instagram and Facebook.
The company updated the app to allow users to opt-in and launch cross-app group chats to about 70 percent of eligible users who have already updated their messenger to the latest version.
Facebook has been working on cross-app messaging for a while now, and after launching earlier on in the year, the company has updated it with a number of new features.
The group chats are presented in a wide variety of themes for users’ interests. Polls are coming to group DMs to allow users vote on various things such as a location to meet or an event theme colour.
Typing indicators are also available in group DMs, allowing users to see when multiple users are drafting a message. Along with these is Facebook watch, which will allow users to watch videos from Instagram and Facebook together.
