Wait For It: Universal Facebook, Instagram and Messenger apps coming to Windows 10!

Yesterday, March 30, Microsoft announced Facebook will be releasing universal apps for Facebook, Instagram and Messenger at its Build 2016 developer conference in San Francisco. 

This innovation sound creamy interesting! The unique aim of this universal app, will only allow developers to build one version for each app and consequently it will work across all Windows 10 devices either on PCs, tablets, or smartphones.

Significantly, "these new universal apps should help boost Windows 10 Mobile's poor app ecosystem." - Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President, Windows and Devices Group.

Meanwhile, the current Instagram app for Windows Phone still doesn't have video support. A lot of latest features is still lacking, needing urgent improvement on the platform. However, on iOS and Android, the Instagram app is already progressing in creating longer 60-second videos.

Here is a pictorial representation of Facebook Messenger on Windows 10 will probably look like (based on information from Microsoft Windows app store):
