Many people prefer to chat it up with their friends and family through the Facebook Messenger mobile application. Messenger is an app from the highly popular social networking company, and it allows for many to communicate with each other in a fairly simple manner, even when both parties are separated by oceans and mountains. Perhaps what you didn’t know is that the social media company has hidden some neat features that can do more than just letting you send a message to your Facebook friends.
Secrets in Facebook Messenger
One of the newer secrets in Facebook Messenger that you probably didn’t know about yet is the existence of chatbots. In case you haven’t heard, it is now deemed as the future of messaging. Artificial intelligence embedded into the application’s inner workings allow for a better way for businesses and other profiles found in Facebook Pages to easily communicate with individuals, even when the administrator of the page is not present at that certain time. For example, if you were to ask a hotel if there are any available rooms on a particular day, then the chatbot would be able to give the person who inquired that there are any vacancies for the inquired date.
Aside from making use of chatbots, you might also want to take advantage of sending a 15-second video to your friends without leaving the Facebook Messenger app. If text messages do become too boring at times, just tap the camera button within the app. Instead of tapping it once, hold it down to record a video. Do remember it’s just for 15-seconds so better state your message quick (or you can just send wacky faces to weird out your friends).
You can also show the people within the Facebook chat room your skills in basketball, well, sort of. Instead of showing a picture or a video about playing the sport, you can actually play the game within the app itself. To do it, send the basketball emoji and then tap it within the chat room. The app will then initiate a game wherein you have to swipe the ball’s direction into the hoop. Try to score more points than your friends.
There are other secrets that you might not know within the Facebook Messenger mobile app. For instance, you can type in @dailycute for the application to send you something to brighten up your day if you’re having a rough one.
