(Web Desk) – Facebook has finally merged its two separate but similar features of stories on both apps which allow giving photo or video status for 24 hours.

It announced yesterday that Facebook Stories and Messenger Day have been combined into a new experience. “Any photos or videos you add to your Stories will appear on both Facebook and Messenger, and will be shared with the same audience across both,” it read.

To solve the issue of separately giving the status on both apps and sync cross-posting, Facebook said, “Now, it s quicker and easier to capture and share moments as they happen with the people you care about most!”

The new feature, called ‘Stories’ which was initially inspired by photo-sharing competitor Snapchat, will allow users to reply on the stories using the Messenger app and maintain switching between the two apps. Stories will sync cross-posting for both Facebook and Messenger apps. Users can share their photos or videos in the 24-hour status.

Messenger product manager Paulina Bozek told TechCrunch, “(Users) prefer Story replies to land inside Messenger.”

With Facebook Stories gone, the social media giant has also dumped its Facebook Direct feature and replaced it with replies on the Messenger app. It will also entertain groups and events to create a larger impact.

Stories will also be available on Facebook Lite app which is the low-data-usage option introduced by the company. It has also planned to review privacy settings for story statuses with options like public, friends only, friends and connections or custom lists.
