The Facebook Messenger, with over 800 million users, is one of the most popular applications across the world of smartphone devices. The app has been used by users across the planet and has many features, and with every update newer features have been added to the application. The latest update to the Facebook Messenger has now given the users a hidden game! Facebook has a hidden basketball game in their messenger, and here’s how to play it –
In the update that came out on the 16th of March, Facebook had mentioned in the changelog that the users can now ‘shoot some hoops’. That seemed quite ambiguous for a while. However, the Facebook Messenger now has a hidden game in it. In order to access this game, users just need to send someone the basketball emoji, after which users will be prompted with a basketball which the users have to flick inside the hoop.
The game is very simple and very addictive at the same time. The game is all about beating your own personal high score. It simply involves swiping the ball towards where you want to throw it. If the ball goes in, you get a hoop, if it does not, you get a crying emoji.
Users who miss it will have to start the game all over again. Beating your best score shows you an updated number in ‘current best’. There are no scoreboards, but users can always take a screenshot!
The updated changelog mentions – “Shoot Some Hoops: Want to see what’s hiding behind the basketball emoji in Messenger? Just send one and tap to find out!”
Difficulty levels too vary, as after you hit 10 hoops the basket will start moving across the screen making it tougher for you to get a hoop thereon. The game has been timed to come out with the NCAA March Madness.
