Facebook seemingly has been working on mobile payments and secret chat attributes for its Messenger app. According to the report published recently by the Information, based on hints found in removed software code on Messenger for iPhone. Commands implanted in the software hint at secret conversations that it is similar to what can be found in a Whats App, the voice and the messaging service owned by Facebook.
Other references which are reportedly found in the code including commands to pay in person and pay in Messenger when picking up any item.
According to Charles King, the principal accountant at Pund-IT, “Since Facebook has long said it would continue to develop and to support its own message app which makes the sense that it would adopt specific Whatsapp features into its solutions of own.”
The mobile pay feature is an acceptable as well, King told Tech News World. However, it remains unclear whether Face book would actually compete with the Android Pay and the Apple Pay directly, or if it would piggyback on one of those services which would require a far lower beginning investment and less risk than starting its own service, and remove the complications of arranging partnerships with banks and financial services according to King saying. Face book does not plan to get into the payments of business directly, but would consider the partnering with other companies, CEO Mark Zuckerberg indicated.
On payments, the basic strategy that we have is, to make especially in a product like the Messenger which was the business interaction may be a bit more proceedings, to take all the opposition out of making the proceedings that we need according to king’s saying and so we don’t view ourselves as a payments business. It is not the type of company that we are and we will partner with everyone those who do payments, according to Zuckerberg’s saying.
The other possible addition to Messenger includes shopping and delivery features, and the ability to adjust the calendars so users can update to do lists, share articles and update their status.
The reputed features have the probability to turn the Messenger into a virtual digital assistant, according to Susan Schreiner, an investigator at C4 Trends.
Probably, it could learn our likes and dislikes, make the suggestions about the articles to read or ebooks to purchase, according to her saying to Tech News World. The Messenger apps already enable you to send the money to friends, so the next logical step would be using the app for in-store purchases. The Facebook would have to overcome a couple of complication, according to saying of Paul Teich, principal investigator at Tirias Research. If the company really wants to turn the secret chat property into a confidential experience like Whats Apps’, it’ll have to be aggressive to give up certain information, according to Teich saying.
He said that the secret chat would probably keep no record at all of the messages sent. It means Meta data too. Otherwise, throwing away the message pays load, but keeping the data such as time and length of the messages, senders and receivers.
