Instagram quietly launches payments for commerce Josh Constine @ 9 hours

WhatsApp for iOS now allows users to watch Facebook, Instagram videos within the app. Version 2.18.51 now adds in-line video playback of Facebook, Instagram videos without navigating away from the windows.

Thankfully, with today's update to the service, you can now view videos from Facebook or Instagram right in a conversation thread itself without worrying that you would be force to leave WhatsApp for the duration of the video. Moreover, it was also reported that Facebook might be fading some of WhatsApp's encryption facilities, which might also be the cause of Jan leaving.

Meanwhile, Facebook Messenger would also receive some major changes including the AR camera effects. I've been blessed to work with such an incredibly small team and see how a insane amount of focus can produce an app used by so many people all over the world. The technology is still a bit out, as only select Instagram users have access to the purchase feature at the moment.

Facebook is finally adding more layers of integration between co-owned platforms as videos from the Facebook and Instagram start playing natively on WhatsApp.

Stickers are also coming soon.
