Facebook brings Watch Together, chat themes on Instagram


San Francisco: Facebook on Wednesday launched messaging options Watch Together and chat themes on Instagram.

Watch Together is offered and while you replace to the brand new messaging expertise on Instagram, you may tune into IGTV, Reels, TV reveals, motion pictures and trending movies in real-time over video chat.

Facebook mentioned it’s bringing two new reveals, “Post Malone’s Celebrity World Pong League” and “Here for It With Avani Gregg,” completely to Messenger and Instagram via Watch Together.

“The second feature we’re rolling out is chat themes such as tie-dye and love so you can personalize your conversations,” Facebook mentioned in a press release.

The third characteristic, Vanish Mode, is coming quickly and is an opt-in characteristic that makes seen messages disappear after you permit a chat thread.

“Now you can send memes, GIFs or reactions to share what you really think but can’t always say, without it staying in your chat history. To turn it on, just swipe up in an existing chat thread – and you’re in vanish mode. Swipe up again and you’re back to your regular chat”. 

Vanish mode can also be optionally available and other people can select whether or not they enter vanish mode with somebody.

“If someone takes a screenshot of your chat while you’re using vanish mode, you’ll be notified. And as always, you can block someone or report a conversation if you feel unsafe”, Facebook mentioned. 

Vanish mode is now obtainable on Messenger within the US and a handful of different international locations, and it is coming quickly to international locations within the EU.

“Vanish mode on Instagram will be coming to the US and other countries soon, when you update to the new Messenger experience,” Facebook mentioned.
