Facebook to kill native chat, bring opt-in crypto to Messenger

Re: Article short on details

^^ This. Use the mobile app, get requested to install Messenger. Use the mobile website, get diverted to install Messenger. Cancel, and you can use the mobile website. If you use a mobile with "desktop view" it kind of works (but Android & Facebooks auto scrolldown/refresh keeps confusing it).

Important messages still go via SMS, and some friends have already migrated to Signal.
