Facebook announced a feature on Messenger to play games with friends without ever leaving the Messenger app. Games like classic Pc-Man, Frenzy, EverWing, Space Invaders, etc. can be played from the IOS and Android Messenger app. However, the user should have latest updated app running in their smartphone operating system.
Facebook Messenger feature is rolling out now to users of the platform across 30 different countries.
With this new feature, the user can play on single player and multiplayer against a friend. Moreover, the user can initiate the games right from the chat conversation by tapping the game controller icon.
Though, some of us might not see the game icon, don’t worry, – Facebook says everything is rolling out.
The social media giant claims that one billion users take to Messenger every month, which makes for quite the potential user-base for anyone creating games for the platform.
The 1 billion people who use Messenger every month connect, banter and share in so many ways. They do this by sending Stickers when words aren’t enough, tapping on Instant Video to share smiles with Mom after an awesome day, or making a quick voice call to let friends know they’re running late. Now they can connect and compete over their favorite games. We think this is just the beginning for games on Messenger — look for new titles to be added, and for new ways to play. Game on!
