Is Facebook Chat integration coming back to Windows Phone? (Update: No)

chat on facebook

In the recent screen shots of Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 published by Microsoft the company may have been hiding a secret in plain sight.

Vietnamese site note Microsoft appears to be showing Chat on Facebook in the pictures, a feature which has been absent since the 8.1 update.

Facebook has recently moved the Chat feature out of the Facebook app into a dedicated Messenger app, to enable it to monetize it separately.  It seems unlikely that they will allow Microsoft to move it back into the OS again, but then the pictures above speak a 1000 words.

What do our readers think? Let us know below.

Update: Microsoft is correcting the image. So, Facebook messaging is not coming back in Windows Phone 8.1 Update.
