About your cross-app communication chats on Instagram
Beginning in mid-December 2023, you will no longer be able to chat with Facebook accounts on Instagram.
Once cross-app communication isn’t available:
  • You won’t be able to start new conversations or calls with Facebook accounts from Instagram.
  • Any existing chats on Instagram that you’ve had with Facebook accounts will become read-only, even if these Facebook accounts are removed from the chat. This means that you and others with Instagram accounts can’t send new messages in these chats.
  • Facebook accounts won’t be able to view your Activity Status or whether you’ve seen a message.
  • Any existing chats you've had with Facebook accounts won't move to your inbox on Facebook or Messenger.
To continue conversations with Facebook accounts, you can start a new chat with them on Messenger or Facebook from your Facebook account.
