This is literally how Snapchat started out.

Beyond visual/text difference, another is that Messenger already has 1B+ users! Hard to tack on a new feature — honestly, probably any feature — at this point. Also, Facebook itself is already experimenting with “Stories” too, and this presumably would be yet another different use of the format. (If they do merge ‘Messenger Days’ with ‘Facebook Stories', that would be slightly better, but would still be problematic for my Messenger usage.)
