You need to know about this new, secret Facebook messenger upgrade

Months after we learned that you can play a secret basketball game in Facebook messenger, today we learn that Facebook has added a secret soccer game, too! Huzzah!


David Marcus announced the fun new addition earlier today on his Facebook page. He writes:

“Our little ? Messenger game we launched for March Madness and the NBA season was played over 1 billion times (!) over the course of the last 3 months. Since you loved it so much, and it’s the Euro 2016 & Copa America… You get where I’m going… ⚽️⚽️⚽️! It’s on!”


So, how do you play? As Mashable explains, it’s just like the basketball game. If you type a soccer emoji and then just press on the icon, the game will begin. You want to keep the ball up in the air for as long as you can. You can get a little competitive, too, as the app will track your fellow players’s scores as well.

Marcus also posted an instructional video you can check out here:

Get to playing! Make sure you download the update first, though!
