WhatsApp integrates into Instagram and changes the meaning of private messages forever
If you use Instagram we will tell you the latest news that has appeared by surprise, although it seems like a test only for a lucky few. Do you also have WhatsApp integrated into Instagram?
Instagram has launched a novelty that has been heard for more than a year. The rumors have come to fruition and now we have WhatsApp integrated into Instagram.
The instant messaging app now allows you to send messages through the photography and short videos social network. Both applications are part of Facebook and the truth is that for several months there was no talk of the supposed merger between Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram.
We have tested it on an iPhone 12, but there are also users who already enjoy this fusion on their Android mobile. We must also say that, after trying 3 different accounts, It has only worked for us on Business Instagram accounts.
If you also want to merge WhatsApp with your Instagram application, follow these steps:
- Open your Instagram app and go to your profile.
- Now click on Edit profile and scroll down to locate Contact options.
- There should appear the option WhatsApp.
- Press and enter your phone number and then select Send code.
- Through a WhatsApp notification from a chat de Facebook Business you will receive a code.
- Write that code on the Instagram screen and you would already have WhatsApp added to your Instagram profile.
- If you click on the WhatsApp option again, your phone number now appears, you can choose to change the number or delete it.
In any case, we have confirmed with several contacts that the number is not visible at any time on our Instagram profile. For this feature to work properly you must have WhatsApp installed on the same phone as you have Instagram.
The only thing that is achieved is to open a WhatsApp chat with the phone number associated with the Instagram profile. The merger of these two applications further facilitates communication on social networks.
All those people who have this feature on Instagram They will be notified that they can also contact you by WhatsApp.
It seems that private messages from Instagram will no longer be so private. In the next few days we will see how this curious fusion between two applications that reign in the territory of social networks evolves.
