Games on FB messenger very soon

New York: You may soon be able to play games over Facebook Messenger. According to reports, Facebook is already in talks with developers for creating games for Messenger. Although the plans for games may still be in the early stages, with major decisions on how they actually work yet to be made, the idea has generated much interest, reported The Verge.

People already have their social network established over Messenger, which could make it an easy way to play casual games which work within Messenger and live inside of its app store. Facebook began allowing third parties to tap into Messenger back in March, but the partners so far have largely been about adding new images — be it GIFs, stickers, or drawings — into chats.

According to reports, games are being viewed as a way to get more engagement and more revenue, as traction apparently hasn’t been great for the initial round of apps. However, details like whether the games will live inside of Messenger or simply use Messenger as a way to link players together are yet to be decided by Facebook.
