If you were looking for your Messenger to be more than just another chatting program, you got what bargained! From now on, you can play games with your friends, family no matter how close or distant right in your messaging conversations. So if you want to challenge your friend from half across the globe to a round of Words with Friends: Frenzy, then now is the time! Beware of your gran though because if you get beaten by her then not even the walk of shame can help you…
It has never been easier to start playing: get the latest version of the program, open a conversation with one or more friends, tap on the game controller icon just below where you type your message, and choose a game to start playing right away. After you finished a round, all participants will see your score and will be able to challenge you back if they are up for more.
People can find games within the Messenger search field, or on Facebook News Feed where they can choose from many different titles like PAC-MAN, EverWing, SPACE INVADERS, TRACK&FIELD 100M, Galaga and many more. Games on Messenger are the first to be rolled out on Facebook’s new Instant Games cross-platform gaming experience.
It is not only social, fun and competitive, games on Messenger feature score-based leaderboards, in-context chat, and group thread conversation to challenge, celebrate and Facebook Messengercongratulate, and be red faced if your granny got higher scores than you.
