Facebook Cross-App Messaging – Last year, Facebook introduced a cross messaging feature for Instagram and Messenger users. It functions on both iOS and Android devices. With this feature, you can now send messages across to your contacts on FB Messenger without having to leave the app and vice versa.
For you to send messages to Messenger contacts directly from the Instagram app, first you have to update or download the latest version of the apps from your app stores. After the update is done, you can now use the cross messaging feature on any of your devices.
How Does Facebook Cross-App Messaging Work?
The moment you enable cross-app messaging, it eliminates the need to leave the app just to cross over to check messages on the other app. This feature also comes with features from Instagram. You can respond or react using emojis, change your chat colors, or create stickers.
