Facebook likely to disable messaging capability in its mobile web app

CALIFORNIA: Online social networking service Facebook wants its user to ‘shift’ to its Messenger and leave messaging on the mobile web application.

According to a statement by the social media giant, it is removing the messaging capability from its mobile web application to push people to Messenger.

The company has also served notice to the users in this regard. The notice says: “Your conversations are moving to Messenger”.

In its statement, Facebook said: “Facebook wants to provide the best possible experience in messaging and the Messenger app is the best platform to provide it.”

The company said that the notice could be ignored for now, but soon it could push the users to download the Messenger app.

Earlier on Thursday, the company announced that it is developing a new artificial intelligence (AI) system called “DeepText” to analyze what users are writing about in posts with near-human accuracy across 20 languages.
