Facebook Gaming has announced that you may now play your favourite games while participating in video calls via Messenger. Facebook had previously stated that the Messenger inbox would be reintegrated into the app.
Play with your friends in Messenger video calls
According to the firm, this new Messenger feature allows you to play games with your loved ones while on a video call, creating a more meaningful connection by allowing you to communicate both through gameplay and discussion.
There are currently 14 free-to-play games available for Messenger video calls, which may be accessed on iOS, Android, and the web without the need for installation. Card Wars by Bombay Play and Exploding Kittens by Coatsink are among the creative games included in the collection.
Along with well-known favourites like Mini Golf FRVR by FRVR and Words With Friends by Zynga. The number of players that can participate in each game varies, although most of them can be enjoyed with as few as two.
To play a game during a Facebook Messenger video call, follow these steps:
- Select the Play icon.
- Choose the game you wish to play and press the Start Game button.
To play the games, start a video call on Messenger, then tap on the group mode button in the centre, then click the “Play” icon and browse from the library of games.
After selecting a game, you may be asked to grant permission to access the game before you can begin playing.
The new game functionality is now available in Messenger video calls on iOS, Android, and the web. Furthermore, the company has stated that it will continue to develop the platform by releasing new free games throughout the year.
