Facebook Messenger shows hints of cross-chat support with WhatsApp

We all know that Mark Zuckerberg plans to integrate all Facebook-owned companies so users can swiftly communicate from one platform to another. As reported by WABetaInfo, a Twitter account that keeps a close eye on the latest WhatsApp developments and updates, Facebook Messenger has shown early signs of cross-chat support and connectivity with WhatsApp.

The idea seems to be simple, amazing too — Facebook Messenger will be connected with WhatsApp chats too.
