Facebook doesn’t explain exactly what features it lacks, but on its support page, the company says that voting on both Messenger and Instagram isn’t currently available in Europe, that Instagram doesn’t have stickers, and that it’s personalized to Messenger.

Other missing features may include the lack of certain file transmissions in Messenger, the lack of nicknames, or the ability to share AR effects on Instagram DM.
