Facebook launches new feature for Instant articles in Messenger!


The most preferred and widely used social networking platform in the world– Facebook, announced that the instant articles; which were till now not available in the Messenger app, will now no longer be limited to the main Facebook app. If you are an android user then you can now view instant articles directly in the Facebook Messenger app. However, the iPhone users have to wait for some time as the company promises to get the same feature in the coming weeks.


Instant articles are the quick-loading version of articles which Facebook users can now directly view in the app. This new feature of Facebook competes directly with Google’s AMP and now with this new feature, the Facebook Messenger works just like you would expect it to. An instant article is indicated by a lightning bolt in the top right corner of the links shared in the Messenger.

Facebook Messenger crossed 900 million users this April and back in January a report suggested that half of the Facebook users access this social network only on mobiles. This mobile-focused feature is very beneficial as hundreds of people share articles links through the mobile app itself. So, instant articles are just a way to enhance the users’ mobile experience.
