Facebook gearing up for most radical change ever: WhatsApp, Instagram, Messenger shake-up


Besides being able to chat between them, Instagram and Messenger users will be getting other upgrades soon. Users that opt-in to the new Instagram and Messenger functionality will also be able to send the new ‘selfie stickers’, as well as watch IGTV or Facebook Watch videos together.

These users will also be able to turn on a new ‘Vanish Mode’, which sees messages automatically disappear after they’ve been viewed. This new feature is akin to one in the works for WhatsApp, which will bring Snapchat’s self-destructing messages to the world’s most popular chat app.

The feature is currently available in the beta build of WhatsApp, with it unclear when it will be getting a general release. It has also been revealed that new privacy settings will be added that allow users to block someone across different apps.
