    Unfortunately, unless there are any Facebook employees on this board, you are only likely to get opinions rather than facts for this question. We can hazard a guess that Facebook has studied the different use habits for users on the platforms and adapted accordingly but, ultimately, we'll never really know for sure without information directly from Facebook. – Andrew Martin Oct 10 '17 at 7:01
  • To clarify, those are not direct messages. That's direct photo/video – Armands Oct 10 '17 at 14:39

Nobody can really tell unless they're working for Facebook specifically on that team, but for me, it looks like a classic case of “it depends in which A/B testing bucket you've landed” unless it's consistent across different Android and iOS devices.
