Facebook Messenger will have the access to the user’s WhatsApp. It will be able to see if a specific Facebook Messenger user is using WhatsApp or not. It will also have access to the phone number, see if the chat is an archive or not, and some other essential details. Moreover Facebook will also be able to see if the particular user in specific WhatsApp group or not. This all will be possible through a code, which Facebook is designing.

No one knows that if Facebook developers let the users to disable the feature or not. Let’s see where it takes the platform.
