Facebook is testing to push ahead with its messaging integration plan, with another new Instagram/Messenger integration element spotted in testing.
As you can see in this screenshot, posted by mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi (and shared by Matt Navarra), Facebook is currently working on the presentation options for a new integration of Messenger inbox access within Instagram Direct.
That builds upon a discovery by Paluzzi last week of a new menu option to ‘Get Messenger on Instagram’.
Instagram has confirmed this test, but has also noted that it’s still in its early stages, and is not being trialed in the main app as yet.
