Who doesn't know Facebook? Nowadays, this app is almost a necessity to get in touch with friends, family and loved ones.
It is also, a popular free social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos and videos.
Another platform called Messenger helps connect people in a lot of creative ways. If you have lots of contacts on FB, you probably know that you can do video calling, chat privately, or in a group.
But there are still a lot of features you are probably not using yet. Here are this 5 secrets you should know:
1. You can play games all the time.
Messenger comes with a number of playable games so if you want to play basketball with a friend, just send him/her a basketball emoji. If it is soccer you like, then simply send him/or a soccer ball emoji. If you want a more challenging set, you can play the likes of “Cut the Rope 2,” “Scrabble,” and “Pac-Man.”
You can play all of these by simply tapping the gamepad icon located at the bottom part of the chat screen.
2. Add contacts like a pro by using Messenger code.
Sometimes, you would want to chat to someone but without the burden of adding him/or on Facebook.
The trick to do is with ease is by using the Messenger code. To see your own code, just click your profile picture on the app itself. Then, click Settings and you will eventually see your profile surrounded by tons of dashes and dots. These are actually your code. Whenever you scan someone’s code using the phone’s camera, you will automatically add that person as contact.
3. You do not need your phone to use Messenger.
Basically, Facebook will ask you to download their Facebook Messenger if you want to message someone, however, you just need to access the app’s online version (Messenger.com) if you don't want your phone to have a facebook messenger app at all.
This standalone site works exactly the same as the app version, but it offers more convenience. If you feel like accessing the messaging platform without getting distracted by Facebook’s notifications, simply use the website version.
4. You can chat with a bot.
Yes, you can now chat with a bot. Some pages have an automatic reply for inquiries so you can chat them and they'll have an easy reply.
So if you feel like no one is talking to you – or your simply bored to the nth level – you can always chat with a bot.
5. The Chatbox shortcut.
This trick is only applicable to Android users. For instance, you have someone that you are always in contact with. This could be your significant other, parents, or siblings, just to name a few. You can create a shortcut directly to your phone’s home screen. How exactly? Just long press any of the conversation you want to create a shortcut for. Then simply click “Create shortcut,” and you should be able to see a shortcut with the person’s name on it. You will no longer go through the entire process of opening the app itself if you want to connect to someone.
6. Secret Conversation is now an Option.
Although, facebook messenger is already secured, secret conversations are encrypted end-to-end across all your mobile devices.
This will only work if the person you are creating a secret conversation with has a Facebook Messenger app installed on his or her phone.
