Facebook Messenger just got way more fun — or competitive — depending on how you look at it, with the ability to play games right in your messaging conversations. Everywhere you have Facebook, on your PC, laptop, iPhone, Android phones and iPad tablets – now you can reach out to your friends online and play games.
Facebook has made it very simple to start playing: In the latest version of the app, open a conversation with a friend (or friends!), tap on the game controller icon just below where you type your message, and choose a game to start playing right away.
PAC-MAN, Galaga, SPACE INVADERS, EverWing, TRACK & FIELD 100M and Words with Friends: Frenzy… and many more titles is rolling out at Facebook Messenger.
After you finish a round, people in the conversation will see your score and will have the opportunity to challenge you back. People can also discover games within the Messenger search field, or on Facebook News Feed where they can play solo or challenge friends back in Messenger.
