Facebook has announced a Send button that allows users to send their Facebook statuses and news to WhatsApp users.

The feature enables the ability to share between Facebook and WhatsApp.

Facebook beta testers, revealed that there is now a “Send” button on the new Facebook App that allows users to send their Facebook status and news over to WhatsApp users.

The Send icon is the same as the WhatsApp icon and this is just the first step of the integration.

There are rumours that the WhatsApp and Facebook integration might be extended to Facebook Messenger too, allowing the merger of two messaging platforms or at least being able to communicate with either set of contacts from one application.

In case you don’t want to wait for the official release of the Facebook app, you can sign up as a beta tester for Facebook’s Android app which essentially involves you joining a Google group for Facebook Android beta testers.

You will then be issued the link to download the beta version of the Facebook app from the Google Play Store.

Please note that the version might be limited to a specific geographic region at this stage.
