Euros 2016 and Copa América Centenario are currently in the spotlight, and to celebrate, Facebook launched a new game anyone can play inside the Messenger application.
The soccer game is a bit hidden, here’s how you can play it. First up, make sure you’re on the latest version of Messenger. The game works on both Android and iOS platforms. To play, you must locate the soccer emoji on your keyboard and send it to the receiver you’d like to play with. Once sent, you can enter the game by clicking on the sent emoji.
Players can send high scores to each other and play interactively right in the chat window. Facebook did something similar for March Madness. Playing is as simple as it gets, simply tap the soccer ball that appears on-screen and don’t let it reach the ground. You’ll soon find out that it’s much harder than it appears.
Facebook is changing Messenger for the better. Just a day or two back, the company pushed out an update giving the app SMS capability. Now, we have a new game. Facebook will have to keep improving if they want to stay on par with rivals like Google and Apple, which both took leaps forward on their messaging apps Allo (coming soon) and iMessage recently. Grab the latest update if you don’t have it already at the download link below.
