You’re two favourite apps (Other than the Radioplayer Canada app to listen to KiSS that is 😉 ) are getting renamed soon.

The two apps, that are both owned by Facebook, have announced that they will soon be rebranded in app stores as “WhatsApp From Facebook” and “Instagram From Facebook”.

PARIS, FRANCE - JANUARY 28: In this photo illustration, the logos of the messaging applications, WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram are displayed on the screen of an Apple iPhone in front of a computer screen displaying a Facebook logo on January 28, 2019 in Paris, France. The big new project of Mark Zuckerberg, founder of social network Facebook is to unify all its messaging applications according to the New York Times. So all the applications of Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, could work together, the exchanged messages would be encrypted as they are currently on WhatsApp. "We are working to ensure that more of our messaging is encrypted end-to-end and we are thinking of ways to make it easier to communicate with family and friends via all networks," said a Facebook spokesman, confirming news reports from New York Times. Facebook's three messaging services each claim more than one billion users worldwide. (Photo by Chesnot/Getty Images)

It’s rumoured that this is the beginning of the 3 apps possibly being linked together somehow in the future.

However, some say that this could be bad news for Instagram and WhatsApp as both of the apps are wildly popular right now and directly associating them with Facebook (that isn’t as cool these days) could do more harm than good.
