During a meeting with investors, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, came back to talk about the project that wants to create an interconnected messaging system that will involve Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
It must be said that at the moment the project is in its infancy and Facebook is still thinking about the various viable solutions, so it will be necessary to wait at least until 2020, if not later, to have a first unified version of the messaging system.
Zuckerberg explains what the benefits of a unified system will be, starting from end-to-end encryption that will allow you to exchange messages with maximum security. The CEO of Facebook emphasizes how unification would bring undoubted benefits to users, making a simple example.
Think of a user who uses the Marketplace on Facebook but then must use WhatsApp for the messaging part, something that would be avoided with the unified solution. Zuckerberg’s dream, not so secret, is to create a system similar to Apple’s iMessage on SMS, with more features and the security given by end-to-end encryption.
Do you find the idea of a unified messaging system involving WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram interesting or do you prefer that things remain separate as they are now? The comment box is at your disposal.
