Messenger launches multiplayer AR games for video chat
Not only can you have conversations with friends, but now you can also play AR games on the Facebook Messenger app.
The social-media site announced on Wednesday that the app now features multiplayer video chat AR games, which promise to make talking with your friends more fun.
Users can now challenge their friends with two games: “Don’t Smile,” where players see who can hold the longest face, and “Asteroid Attack,” where they navigate their spaceships without hitting asteroids.
Messenger also promised that more games will be out in the following weeks or months, including “Beach Bump,” where you pass a beach ball back and forth, and “Kitten Kraze” with matching cats.
The feature is available when users tap on the star button while doing video chat. From there, their friends will be notified if they are being challenged.
Both games are now available on the latest update on Messenger. /ra
