Facebook friends will soon be able to read your WhatsApp status

After Facebook announced earlier this year that it wants to integrate the services WhatsApp, Facebook and Facebook Messenger and Instagram into an overarching platform, nothing happened for a while. Now a function is to come, which makes the merging of Facebook and WhatsApp for the first time for the user tangible.

Status message turns Facebook Story

WhatsApp users can soon post their WhatsApp status message seamlessly on Facebook. There, the status will be displayed as a Facebook story. At least WABetaInfo reports in a tweet. It also announces screenshots of the new feature, which will soon be available on WABetaInfo.

With the also belonging to Facebook Instagram this feature is already available. These can easily be posted on Instagram and Facebook at the same time. Facebook Stories, Instagram Stories, and WhatsApp Status work alike now. Users can post photos, videos and the like, which disappear after 24 hours. The porting of WhatsApp on Facebook is therefore only a formality, but shows that the company wants to live up to its announcement.

But also in the other direction functions should be ported. For example, end-to-end encryption, which has been part of WhatsApp for some time now. It should come in the foreseeable future also for the Facebook Messenger and Instagram messages.

Facebook and WhatsApp interlinked in the background

Since WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook in 2014, the social giant is driving the integration of the two services. Statements that WhatsApp Messenger should remain independent have since proven empty-handed. Facebook already links Facebook and WhatsApp contacts in the background so that, for example, Facebook can display contacts with phone numbers taken from WhatsApp. In the future Zuckerberg wants to merge WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram so that messages and content can be shared within the services.
