Meta’s cloud gaming service Facebook Gaming has announced that users may now play their favorite games during video conversations on Messenger.
“This new, shared experience in Messenger makes it easy to play games with friends and family while in a video call, allowing you to deepen connections with friends and family by engaging in conversations and gameplay at the same time,” the company said in a blogpost.
The tech giant revealed that 14 no-install free games are accessible in Messenger video calls on iOS, Android, and the web.
A variety of games are available, including some fan favorites like “Mini Golf FRVR” by FRVR and “Words With Friends” by Zynga, as well as some brand-new games like “Card Wars” by Bombay Play and “Exploding Kittens” by Coatsink.
While each game supports a varied number of players, the majority of games, according to the company, may be played by just two people.
To access the games, initiate a video conversation on Messenger, press the group mode icon in the center, and then tap the “Play” icon.
Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg, has said that the company is extending its premium membership service for Facebook and Instagram to consumers in the States.
The “Meta Verified” plan, which was initially introduced in Australia and New Zealand, provides a verified label, improved impersonation security, and easy access to customer assistance.
The monthly membership fee for the web is $11.99, while the monthly fee for the mobile version is $14.99.
