It is now almost fixed that Facebook is going to change the name of its two products, Instagram and WhatsApp.
Facebook wants to better show the ownership of their own brand name on these two popular apps. They want to be crystal clear about their apps. One of the spokesperson from Facebook said, “We want to be clearer about the products and services that are part of Facebook.”
So, the re-branding of Instagram and WhatsApp is going to be real soon.
After the re-branding of these apps, users can see the name of Instagram and WhatsApp as “Instagram From Facebook” and “WhatsApp from Facebook”. These new names will be showing up in the Google Play Store and App Store. However, for now, the name of these apps will be the same as before in your phones home screen.
Facebook has already made the same changes to one of its product, “Oculus”
