Instant Games

Most of us can’t live without our smartphones anymore. Not because we’re addicted but because we decide what food to buy, keep in touch with friends and family, work and even play games on there. So Facebook Messenger decided to integrate two of those activities with Instant Games. 

Instant Games on Messenger

On Messenger, now you can play games with anyone who you have a conversation with, including groups. The latest update of the game will have Words with Friends: FrenzyPAC-MAN, EverWing, Space Invaders, TRACK & FIELD 100M, Galaga and many other Instant Games and will be available on the latest versions of Facebook Messenger on iOS and Android

It’s really easy to start a game. Open a conversation with a friend (or friends!), tap the game controller icon just below where you type your message, and choose a game to start playing right away. After a round, people in the conversation can see your score and challenge you back. People can also find new games within the Messenger search field, or on Facebook News Feed, where they can play solo or challenge friends back in Messenger. Games on Messenger are the first to be rolled out on Facebook’s new Instant Games cross-platform gaming experience.

 

Here are the launch titles available on Messenger:
