Facebook has just reached a major milestone with Messenger, as the service reaches its 10th anniversary. To celebrate the occasion, the company is adding a number of new features, including a feature that lets you vote for your friends to find out who is “most”.
The most notable new feature announced by Facebook is that you can put your friends in a “most likely” game in a fun game. You can come up with all sorts of interesting questions and see which of your friends are more likely to ask them.
Facebook also unveiled a new way to send money to friends on their birthdays in the United States. You can use Facebook Pay to send cash gifts that will tell your friend that you are thinking about them on their special day.
Also on the topic of birthdays, there is a chat theme that will set the mood for the celebration. The company even added a birthday AR effect and a birthday balloon 360 background. Finally, Facebook added a birthday song and a confession message effect that you can use in Messenger.
You can now also use Messenger to share Facebook contacts, a valuable new feature to get people to know each other.
Finally, Word Effects is coming to Messenger. You can set the words to animate the selected emoji to fill your screen. This feature is not yet available, but Facebook says it will soon be coming to the Messenger app.
