Facebook is testing a lot lately, and it’s becoming harder each day to figure out what a new feature is and when it launched. One of these features is the apparent ability for users to join Facebook Events from within the desktop version of Messenger.
Back in May, Facebook did announce that it would be in integrating Facebook Events more tightly into the Messenger platform’s applications. It did not however go into detail about whether it would integrate into desktop Facebook Messenger or not. Now, there are some Facebook users who are seeing just such an integration and are being allowed to join Facebook events directly from within a message they receive from a friend, inviting them to attend.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Declining invitations can be done through Messenger, and Facebook is even going to be telling even organisers how many users have seen their events and when. It seems that Facebook is putting a lot of emphasis on its Events functionality, so we can expect a lot more from them on this in the near future.
Do you have this functionality yet?
