Evidence suggests Instagram may soon support video calls

A few days ago we reported that Facebook’s new Instagram update makes the app act more like a messaging app.

Now there is more evidence that Facebook is turning Instagram into another WhatsApp or Messenger.

WABetaInfo has discovered that Instagram for iOS contains a (currently hidden) feature which will display a video call icon while you are in a DM conversation with a person, suggesting friends will soon be able to communicate via video call using the app.

The feature is still under development and currently inactive, but if realized would be just another example of Facebook converging the functionality of all their messaging apps while still keeping them separate, which is a rather interesting (but seemingly successful) strategy.
