Facebook will add its name to WhatsApp and Instagram
Facebook will add its name to WhatsApp and Instagram soon.
The Information broke the news before a Facebook spokesperson confirmed directly that the change is indeed happening. Instagram will soon be known as “Instagram from Facebook” and WhatsApp will be called “WhatsApp from Facebook”. The new app titles will appear in Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
The Facebook spokesperson shared that the company wants to “be clearer about the products and services that are part of Facebook”. Earlier this year, Facebook announced that it will enable cross-messaging for WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger. Stamping its name on WhatsApp and Instagram seems to be the first step in the integration.
