Looks like Sony is doing the same thing Facebook is doing with its messaging system.
Sony has recently updated the PlayStation app to remove the messaging feature. Now they have released a new app dedicated for messaging friends on PSN. Does that remind you of another company that did the same thing?
It may be a bit inconvenient for some people to use two apps for PlayStation but we gave it a try on Android, and it’s much better and more faster than having it integrated in the PlayStation App. It also has Material Design, which is nice.
