Facebook starts implementing the cross-app messaging feature to the Instagram app. So users can send messages to anyone on Facebook from their Instagram app and vice versa. The main advantage of this feature is that Instagram users don’t need to install Facebook Messenger on their phones to send messages and reshare posts.

Here’s how to chat with Facebook contacts from your Instagram app. The cross-app messaging feature is rolling out globally, and it’ll reach all users soon. Though there are few limitations, like send a message to a single contact, it could be a useful feature for many.
