How to Merge Instagram and Messenger?

The feature we’re about to discuss arrived in 2020, so if you’re late to the party, it’s better than never.

However, this feature integrates Instagram and Messenger to allow seamless messaging across these platforms.

With this update, Meta is one step closer to integrating and unifying its messaging platforms for better user experiences.

If you are one of the people who don’t know how this cross-messaging feature works and how to enable it, we are here to help you.

So, how do Messenger and Instagram combine?

A guide to integrating Instagram and Messenger

Here are steps to help you navigate the path to integrating or linking your Instagram with Messenger for double the fun.

Step #1: Go to Instagram settings.

Follow these steps to go to Instagram settings:

  • Launch the Instagram app on your device. It will work on iOS and Android apps, so don’t worry!
  • Click on the profile icon in the lower right corner.
  • Click on the hamburger menu icon in the upper right corner.
  • Select “Settings & Privacy”.

Step 2: Navigate To the Meta Section.

Now after going to settings do this:

  • Look for the option that says “dead”.
  • You can see the Account Center option. Click on it.

Step 3: Enter your Facebook account.

  • Under Account Settings, click Accounts to link Facebook Messenger to Instagram.
  • Click “Add Accounts”.
  • Click on “Add Facebook Account”. A page will now open to enter your Facebook account credentials.
  • This process will link your Facebook account to your Instagram account for an integrated experience.

Step 4: Check the results.

  • Open Instagram direct messages.
  • Click on the search bar and type the account name.
  • Scroll down, and you’ll see a profile under the “More on Instagram” and “More on Facebook” sections.

If you click on the profile under the Facebook section and write a message, the message will be sent to the Messenger app and you won’t need to go to the Messenger app.

Final thoughts

The cross-messaging platform between Messenger and Instagram is a great attempt by Facebook to integrate its platforms for better user experiences.

Integrating Instagram and Messenger conversations allows users to access both inboxes from one app.

Use our guide to try out the feature if you don’t want to miss out on all the fun.

Hopefully, Facebook will offer more integration options with WhatsApp to boost its game.
