Facebook's Instant Articles are coming to Messenger
Checking out articles your friends share through Facebook Messenger is about to become much faster. Facebook has announced today that it is bringing its Instant Articles to Facebook Messenger, meaning links from participating publishers should open much faster going forward.
It's definitely good to see Instant Articles, which work much like Google's own Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) in Search, make their way from Facebook proper to Messenger. Of course, you'll only be able to take advantage of the vastly reduced loading times and data consumption if the publisher is part of the Instant Articles program, but it's a step forward nonetheless.
Facebook notes that Instant Articles will become available for Android first, while iPhone users will get the feature in the coming weeks.
