Group Messaging with Rich Experiences
Messenger and Instagram have had cross-app chat for a year now. So that you could have the greatest possible chatting experience, we wanted to add some Messenger charm to Instagram! People no longer have to second-guess which app they’re using because of cross-app communication.

The introduction of group cross-app interaction is a fantastic way to continue this trend. Group conversations between Instagram and Messenger friends will be available once this update goes live. You may use chat themes and customized responses in cross-app group conversations to further personalize your conversation.

Tools for expressing yourself and adding your own flair
Facebook understands the importance of expression and customization, and that your conversation needs to reflect your current state of mind on occasion. Messenger and Instagram users may now experience new creative and expressive chat themes that we’ve been working on.
Facebook created the Cottagecore chat design to give you a taste of the increasingly trendy Gen Z style. The theme is based on a pastoral environment that’s idealized, and you can now use it to customize your conversations.
Facebook created a beautiful chat theme based on J Balvin’s album artwork to assist his fans to celebrate the arrival of his new album. In addition to remembering their favorite tunes from the album, listeners may spice up their conversations using emojis.
Facebook created an Astrology graphic/art suite while Mercury is retrograde to keep the positive vibes flowing. Bring a cosmic vibe to your group conversations by using the Astrology chat theme.

Some things work better when they’re done in concert. Consider a moment when you shared a video of your favorite song to a friend or when you and your family binge-watched a new program. These shared experiences help people form bonds, and we’re constantly striving to provide tools to help you build them.
