You may soon be able to make purchases on Instagram. Additionally, the latest 2.18.51 update for Whatsapp will allow us to add/revoke admin privileges from other users.

Facebook-owned the Instagram and Whatsapp both, previously it integrated the payment option in Facebook and Whatsapp.

Seeing as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are all part of the former's empire it's perhaps surprising the feature has taken this long to integrate. Remaining logged into the app to complete the transaction is likely to make the new application more user-friendly as it contributes significantly toward operational convenience. In the USA, the standalone headset is available for $199. We can expect users shopping more via Instagram, as this payments feature allows users shop without the need of leaving the app.

Stickers are also coming soon. In fact, the executive said, people have already used about 2billionminutes of video calling on WhatsApp alone (and Zuckerberg apparently contributes to them, relying on the service to video chat with his young daughters when he's on the road).

It seems that Facebook is turning WhatsApp from a safe messaging app to just a general messaging app while taking away the security measures that its founders were so adamant on. Since Facebook acquired WhatsApp for a whopping $19 billion in 2014, it was unclear how the company planned to recover the massive investment. As of now, the feature has been launched in the beta mode. Beginning as a photo networking service, it has since turned more into a social media platform and now a place for commerce. The dating feature also has a messaging option via dedicated inbox rather than Messenger.

During the F8 conference, Facebook also talked about a new Clear History feature.

Keep one thing in mind though, this feature is in the process of being rolled out to everyone as we speak. Koum, who has often publicly despised the data harvesting and ad-supported revenue model and is a big advocate of personal privacy, had integrated end-to-end encryption in WhatsApp two years ago and promised to protect user privacy.
