The app Facebook Messenger for Android and iPhone it is one of the most downloaded in the stores because it is necessary for Facebook’s chat from a mobile, but it is also one of the most hated because it is heavy and capable of slowing down the performance of the cheapest or oldest phones.
The fact remains, however, that Facebook is aiming to make its Messenger something that is not just a simple chat app, but a real platform in which to use other apps (in the form of Messenger bots) and also for playing.
In fact, in the last update a few weeks ago, Facebook Messenger has added games to the chat, complete and also elaborate, to challenge friends.
