Facebook recently started to roll out Instant Games in the U.S. and 30 other countries. There are currently 17 games from classic developers such as Bandai Namco, Konami, and Taito. You can also find games from newer developers such as Zynga and King. The games are available on newer iOS and Android devices.
So the next time you are waiting for that messenger reply, you can now challenge your friends in Pac-Man, Space Invaders or even Words with Friends!
The games are built with HTML 5, so they do not need to be downloaded. You can access the games through the game controller icon next to the photos and sticker buttons in the messenger app.
