Thus, according to the report, for users looking to acquire Ether, the company is excited to introduce a built-in BTC to ETH (and vice versa) exchange, powered by ShapeShift. Accessible directly within the Blockchain wallet, this integration makes it easy for users to acquire both digital currencies and monitor exchange progress, from start to finish.
As popularity of Ethereum has grown, so has the desire from our customers to have the option to manage multiple digital assets with their Blockchain wallets. We are thrilled to introduce this new functionality to our community and will continue to find ways to make interacting with digital assets even easier.

Peter Smith also highlights that "this is just the first iteration of this product". In the coming weeks and months (and years), the company will continue to gather user feedback and use that to further build out this integration.
