Facebook Adds New AR Games to Messenger Video Chats

August 09, 2018 / Andrew Hutchinson

The option will be available at any time during a video chat, with up to six people able to participate in a game at once. To try it out for yourself, start a Messenger video chat as normal, then tap the new star icon on the screen and select one of the AR games. This will then trigger a notification to everyone in the video chat that the game is about to start. There are only two games available at launch, but more additions are planned - as explained by Facebook: “You can challenge your friends around the world to two games: see who can hold a serious face the longest with “Don’t Smile”, or see who can better navigate their spaceship with “Asteroids Attack”. We’re planning to roll out more games in the coming weeks and months – including passing a beach ball back and forth with “Beach Bump” and a matching cat game with “Kitten Kraze”  so make sure to check back often!”
