Facebook begins connecting Messenger and Instagram chats together Instagram

We knew it was coming back in January 2019, and now it looks as though the changes are finally going public: Facebook has started inviting users to connect their Facebook Messenger and Instagram chat accounts together.

As spotted by The Verge, some people are seeing a message inside Instagram on Android and iOS advertising “a new way to message” – that new way being to chat directly with contacts on Facebook as well as Instagram.
