Social networking giant Facebook is reportedly restoring its chat feature in its mobile app where users do not need to use the Messenger app separately to send messages.
In a report by techcrunch.com, researcher Jane Manchun Wong discovered an unreleased feature that restores limited chat features back into the Facebook app.
It can be remembered that Facebook’s messaging feature has been removed which requires users to download Messenger in order to send private messages to friends.
According to Wong’s findings, calling, photo sharing and reactions will not be supported in the Facebook app as of writing if or until further developments in the feature were made.

According to Wong, Facebook has confirmed that they are testing the restoration of the chat feature back in the app.
“Facebook has also confirmed my speculation that Messenger will stay and Facebook chats will be basic,” Wong wrote in a tweet.
