Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our next news is about Messenger.
Messenger team from Facebook made an announcement last week, about the new features that are coming to the Messenger app, Messenger Kids app, and to Instagram Direct Messaging. Messenger gets themed chats. Messenger Kids get stickers that are going to be helpful for the kids to learn more about other cultures. But the most interesting update is on Instagram Direct Messaging, where you get visual replies.
Visual replies are going to be available soon. You can also send an audio message as a reply. Today audio chat has become a big part of almost every channel. So no surprise that Facebook is bringing it to the messaging system. There are also a couple of other features that I will link to. All those details are in the show notes, definitely check out if you are having Messenger as part of your communication strategy in your nonprofit or ministry.
