Back in July, Instagram added a “Join Chat” sticker that allowed users to post stories and initiate group chats with their followers. The feature was later rolled out to all the Instagram users. Now, it looks like Instagram’s parent company Facebook wants to add the feature to the social media platform. The feature was discovered by Jane Wong who is known for leaking features before they are publicly available.

According to the tweet, the feature will work exactly like the Instagram sticker and will allow users to join chats with ease. There’s no timeline on when the feature will be available but it sure will be helpful to users who currently have to manually add everyone to a group chat on Facebook.
