WhatsApp: Facebook is working to connect with Facebook Messenger

Facebook apparently plans to continue his Messaging to unite services WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, as well as the Chat function of Instagram under one roof. The suggest searches of the blog "WABetaInfo". Therefore, Facebook has to integrate the services into a single application.

In a Version of the Facebook Messenger App appeared multiple clear evidence of a closer connection between the two Messaging services. This is according to the report of the "WABetaInfo" to database entries on WhatsApp information, the the Messenger App creates on the user's device.

Facebook-database of WhatsApp information surfaced

To see about so-called metadata, such as the WhatsApp Name, profile picture, and Info. Facebook could thus read out whether the WhatsApp blocked contacts, Push notifications are enabled, and other information such as the phone number. Chat content, as the summary would not capture Facebook according to this Version of WhatsApp and reading.

Instagram is currently working to integrate the Facebook Messenger as a recommendation. More specifically, Instagram wool recommend, then, according to the developer, Alessandro Paluzzi, the Download of Facebook Messenger users in the App.

although This is still not direct Integration to the Facebook Messenger, Instagram, shows, however, that Facebook is aiming for, apparently, an even closer integration of the services. The photo and Video platform Instagram like, WhatsApp, for Facebook group.

WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram to be updated

Although the Leak represents only an early stage of the Facebook Messenger App, which is probably not even a Beta Version. However, the Code shows that Facebook is still targeted to combine the services of WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and the Chat function of Instagram in a single interface.

This is mainly from a legal point of view, in some countries, such as Germany, there is a Problem. In Germany, Facebook had to bend to judgments already in court, according to which a transfer and an exchange of user data between the individual services is illegal. Problematic would be the case, for example, if a user only uses WhatsApp and the Messenger his cell phone number has stored, Facebook taps the number but about the Messenger.

Facebook would probably "only" metadata, but no WhatsApp messages

the Chat content would not collect Facebook because of the end-to-end encryption in WhatsApp messages, according to the report. Facebook could import only the Signal Protocol of WhatsApp, the presumption - but not content. Nevertheless, the collection of metadata would mean data like phone numbers and profile information, but a substantial intrusion into the privacy and self-determination of the users - and again, courts employ.

by the Way: WhatsApp is already data to Facebook. On the official WhatsApp Website States literally: "To include the phone number you used when registering for WhatsApp verified did, some of the device information (device ID, OS version, App Version, platform information, the country code of the mobile number, network code, as well as markers that allow your approval to receive updates and control options to keep track of) and some of your usage information (when you WhatsApp for the last Time used to do, when you have your Account registered, as well as the type and frequency of your use of Features)."
