Facebook has ended its standalone Snapchat Stories clone for Messenger by connecting the feature to its main mobile app.
Now Stories shared on Facebook can be posted to Messenger and vice versa.
Facebook is hoping the feature will cause less confusion around when people should post in the different apps.
The Stories feature is also being added to Facebook groups, events, and pages.
Facebook has shuttered its standalone Snapchat clone for Messenger.
Instead, Facebook is tying together its Snapchat clone, located in the main Facebook app, with Messenger, according to a company spokesperson. Now videos shared through Facebook's main Stories feature can be shared to Messenger and vice versa.
The result simplifies Facebook's multi-pronged effort to take on Snapchat's Stories format, which displays photos and videos shared in chronological order that disappear after 24 hours.
