The chat service from Facebook is no slouch and is becoming more and more popular. Facebook is also keen to make its Messenger service interesting to keep more and more users on its service. Recently I have shared how to play hidden chess game in Facebook Messenger with your friends online. Now, Facebook has introduced another mini-game in its Messenger service. It is a little fun game that Facebook has built for it’s chat app.
The new basketball game comes out in time for March Madness college tournament and the fans would be loving it. Well, this time the new game is not really hidden rather was announced in the update log for Messenger app on Android and iOS. But yes, it’s secret unless you know how to find it 🙂 .
And here’s how to unlock this addictive basketball game:
- Just check in App store or Google Play Store and get the latest updated version of the app. Otherwise, the game will not work at all.
- To open the game, start Messenger chat with any of your friend and send a basketball emoji.
- When the emoji is sent, tap on the basketball emoji and the game will launch in Messenger itself.
The game is simple, put the basketball in the hoop with the flick of your finger. But as the game progresses the angle changes for the ball creating a bit of increased difficulty level. Every time the basket is done you get a point and the game cheers you up with emoji like thumbs up or muscle arm. If you miss the sad emoji will come, once you miss the game resets to start. These addition of emoji in the game gives it a nice touch while playing.
Your high scores will be updated in the conversation thread making you aware who has the highest score. That’s not all, as your score crosses 10 the basket starts to move from side to side, which really take the difficulty of the game to another level.
So, what are you waiting for? Just go and check the Messenger app and have Basketball fun Challenge with your friends, play with them and have fun while having chats. With these small changes Facebook is making its Messenger app more fun to use for users.
