With more than 1 billion users, WhatsApp holds the title of the world's most widely used instant messaging application, no doubt. But Facebook Messenger has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years and is in a well - deserved second position.
Not surprisingly, the network option I like is an increasingly complete application that has the backing of one of the veterans in the field of social networks. And it will be more complete because the games come to Facebook Messenger.
If you use Facebook Messenger on iOS, you can enjoy the Instant Games
Facebook announced today on its Web Newsroom , which reports on all its new products, the arrival of the Games Instant Messenger. It is games users can access without leaving the application window. Among the titles available, some are as popular as Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Words With Friends, Arkanoid, Galaga, Nex and EverWing. As you see, authentic classics that rest nostalgic in the memory of many users.
These games come to Facebook Messenger with scorecarding, individual or group chats, and the opportunity to challenge gourmand friends (or not so friendly). What do we need to enjoy Instant Games? Well , simply upgrade to the latest version of Facebook Messenger for iOS and ready. Once this version is installed, an icon for the games will appear at the bottom of the chat.
Although enjoys good numbers, the truth is that Facebook needs a boost to leave behind the criticism that has arisen with controversial measures for privacy. A good example is the case of exchange of user data with WhatsApp - owned company Zuckerberg since 2012 - and it has been paused by Facebook , after various regulatory institutions would open paths investigations.
Another example of change that has not liked by users is that of advertising messages through Messenger , a form with which Facebook will insert ads in the news feed. By clicking on these, users will be redirected to a Messenger chat with the advertised signature. Fortunately, this is not mandatory, because the social network will allow users to block such conversations.
In any case, the inclusion of classic games and popular Facebook Messenger can assume the boost it needs the most used social network in the world for your app messaging continues to grow. We play?
