Remember when Facebook made everyone download the Messenger app, after they made getting chats inaccessible on the main app?
Well, this makes up for that annoyance.
There are a couple of hidden games in the app, but it takes a little skill to figure them out. (And we mean a little because they’re really simple to access.)
Want to play hoops on your smartphone? Open up a chat window and insert the basketball emoji. Then, press send. Next, click on the sent emoji.
A basketball shooting game will come up on your screen. Warning: don’t underestimate this game. (We did and it didn’t work out well for our shooting average.)
If you want to exercise your brain, how about a rousing game of chess against a computer?
All you have to do is open a chat window and type @fbchess play in the message window. You’ll get a chess board in your chat window and a message telling you if you’re playing with the white or black pieces.
