The colors of the Facebook Messenger application icon have recently changed, as the social media giant decided to modify its color scheme, abandoning the traditional blue and white appearance to obtain a gradient very similar to Instagram in blue, purple, pink and orange, while it may take some time to get used to it, The following is some information about the reason behind changing the icon colors, as follows:
Why did the Facebook Messenger icon change?
Facebook said that the new slogan aims to “define our continuous evolution from a simple way to send messages to your friends on Facebook, to a place to communicate with your favorite people, on your favorite apps and devices.” However, the similarities between the new Messenger icon and the Instagram icon are stark. Too far to be dismissed as a mere coincidence, Facebook definitely announced the integration of Facebook Messenger and Instagram last month.
“Over a billion people are already using Messenger as a place to share, connect and express themselves with family and friends,” wrote Adam Mosseri, Instagram President and Vice President of Facebook Messenger, Stan Chudnovsky, in a post on Facebook on September 30th. We connect the Messenger and Instagram experience to bring some of the best Messenger features to Instagram – so you can reach the best messaging experience, no matter what app you use.
What does the integration between Messenger and Instagram mean?
The integration means that Facebook Messenger and Instagram users will soon be able to send messages to each other across the two platforms, but incoming messages and calls from friends and family using Instagram will remain in your Instagram app, and the main change is that people who use Messenger can now reach you on Instagram without downloading a new app, and vice versa.
Where was this feature rolled out?
Facebook says that this possibility will be offered to “most North American users” soon, and it is likely that others will follow soon after, and it is not yet clear when users residing in the United Kingdom or any other country will receive the update.
What are the new Messenger features?
Facebook also announced 10 new features:
– Watch Together: which allows you to set TV shows and video with other people in a video call.
Vanish Mode: Makes messages disappear after you see them or when you close the chat.
– Selfie stickers: that you can create and customize yourself.
– Customize the emoji of the interaction.
– Change chat colors.
– Forwarding, which is limited to up to five friends or groups
Responses: Like WhatsApp, it allows to respond directly to a specific message to avoid confusion
– Animated message effects
– Message controls that allow you to specify who can message you directly, and who cannot message you at all
– Improved reporting and update blocking: which allows you to report entire conversations as well as specific messages on Instagram
