Group chats with Facebook accounts
If you’ve upgraded to Messenger features on Instagram, you can create a new group chat with Instagram and Facebook accounts. Note that you can’t add Facebook accounts to existing group chats that only include Instagram accounts.
Some features aren’t available for group chats that include Facebook accounts like:
  • Message forwarding and vanish mode
  • Animated selfie stickers
  • Sending and receiving payments
  • Restricting a member of the group
  • Ignoring or hiding the group
  • Marking messages as unread
