On February 8th, according to foreign media reports, the German antitrust regulator said that Facebook will implement the anti-monopoly investigation if it implements the merger plan for Facebook's plans to fit the three applications of WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger.
Earlier, the German antitrust regulator had ruled on Facebook's willingness to collect user data, saying it would no longer allow Facebook to force users to agree to its unrestricted collection of information.
In January, foreign media reported that Facebook plans to integrate the three applications of WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, and will remain as a separate application, but the general messaging features will be integrated.
For example, WhatsApp users can initiate chats with Instagram users, breaking the barriers between Facebook's social platforms. In addition, Messenger users can also send "end-to-end" encrypted sessions to people with only WhatsApp accounts.
