of WABetaInfo Report According to the developer Alessandro Paluzzi, it has been informed that Facebook is working on the integration of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. The developer has received some important references regarding this integration, such as the code indicating that Facebook is creating some tables in the local database to manage messages and other WhatsApp user services in order. The code reference indicated that Facebook can know which WhatsApp contacts are blocked, not only that it can also recognize the sound of push notifications and other chat related information.
On the basis of the code, it also includes information like contact number, message counter, archive chat. Apart from this, Facebook Messenger can also prove to be able to see profile photos of WhatsApp groups and contacts.
The tracker claims that Facebook is not collecting WhatsApp messages, but the code from the local database is working on it. WABetaInfo has predicted that Facebook may adopt a single protocol to encrypt and decrypt messages, which WhatsApp is already using. However, at the moment it is not clear whether the disable option will be given in this feature or not. The tracker believes that due to being a difficult feature, Facebook will also offer an option to disable this feature in the coming times.
WABetaInfo expects end-to-end encryption of WhatsApp messages to continue.
