Users will be able to tap the existing Messenger icon in the main app which will lead them directly to the messages without having to launch the dedicated Messenger app.
Facebook removed the built-in chat service from the main app in 2014, compelling users to install the dedicated app.
However, as the company plans on integrating its messaging services across all its apps, including Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram, it but seems wiser and more convenient to have the Facebook Messenger injected again in the main app.
Currently, the integration is limited only to early testers. If Facebook does integrate, it is likely to be rolled out to all users by early 2020 when the company is expected to unify its messaging services.
