Facebook has been a company which has been on a massive growth and has been rising to popularity with every passing day. The company has been adding on more and more features and updates to the Facebook Messenger of late, and it looks like the company is looking forward towards building the messenger service as the one-stop-solution for all the needs of the users. The company has been improvising the offering of the messenger and has been introducing new and updated features in it from time to time. The latest update could soon have the users shop using the Facebook Messenger.
Lines of code have been found inside the Facebook Messenger by The Information, which reveal that Facebook might be planning shopping as the next service for the users of the Facebook Messenger. The company has specified that the app will allow the users to pay in person or pay directly in the messenger app when the item is picked by them.
Comments made by Zuckerberg in January add fuel to fire as Zuck had said back in Jan that “We’ll partner with everyone who does payments,” Zuckerberg said. “We look at the stuff that Apple is doing with Apple Pay, for example, as a really neat innovation in the space that takes a lot of friction out of transactions as well.”
Facebook entering the world of shopping could add on to the long list of existing services such as booking an Uber and much more that can now be done via the Facebook Messenger.
Facebook is looking forward towards building an ecosystem of its own – the main Facebook app, the Facebook Messenger, Moments, WhatsApp, Instagram, and several other such technologies have been acquired by Facebook which offer a one stop solution for many needs of the people. The company is indeed cooking something big in the days to follow.
