In order to work this out, a huge amount of reconfiguring is needed to be done by thousands of Facebook employees. They will need to change how the apps function at their most basic levels. All this being done to incorporate all the three apps end-to-end encryption. However, WhatsApp and Facebook Messengers are already end-to-end encrypted.

According to The New York Times, "The move has the potential to redefine how billions of people use the apps to connect with one another while strengthening Facebook's grip on users, raising antitrust, privacy and security questions. It also underscores how Zuckerberg is imposing his authority over units he once vowed to leave alone."
