Meta is currently testing two features that will further integrate Facebook and Instagram. On Monday, the company began rolling out a new interface for switching between accounts on Android, iOS, and the web.
You can use the feature to switch between Facebook and Instagram without having to navigate to your phone’s home screen, multitasking menu, or app drawer if you’ve added your Facebook and Instagram credentials to the same Accounts Center.
You can also see a count of all your notifications in one place thanks to the interface.
Simultaneously, Meta is launching a redesigned login and onboarding experience on Android and iOS. If you’re new to the company‘s social networks, you can set up one account and then use it to set up others.
Those who already have both Facebook and Instagram accounts can now use the login information from one to access the other – though you must first add them to the same Accounts Center.
When you use an existing account to create a new one or add an account to the Accounts Center, Meta will notify you.
Furthermore, security features such as two-factor authentication will continue to function, preventing someone from using your Instagram credentials to access your Facebook account, for example.
Despite the fact that the new features are “currently limited to Facebook and Instagram,” Meta says it will “continue to explore how to improve connected experiences across all of our technologies.”
They come after the launch of Meta accounts in August and a recent decline in both revenue and user growth for the company.
