Facebook is a considerable social network on the list of social media networks all over the world. In the second quarter of 2020 alone, the company had 2.7 billion users. However, more than 3.14 billion users at least use one of the company’s major products that include WhatsApp, Instagram, and Messenger.
One of the most important products of Facebook is its messenger. It comes in quite handy for messaging and other purposes for both Facebook and Instagram. Read on below to find out about the 10 other things you can do with your app!
Use on the Computer
You can use Messenger on your computer as well. All you have to do is go to Messenger.com and you can chat with ease and comfort. If you’re texting on Facebook.com, notifications may bother you. But on this website, you can have conversations without any intrusion whatsoever. All you have to do is log in on Messenger.com with your Facebook login credentials and you’re all set to chat! The good news is you do not need a lot of bandwidth to use Messenger.com. For gaming enthusiasts like me, high bandwidth offering Spectrum internet plans are a must.
Yes, you can use Facebook to send and receive money as well! Interesting, right? You can easily connect your credit card to the Facebook app and send money to streamers, and your friends, etc. And surely, your friends can also send back money to you. To set up your card details you have to go to profile and then payments. Cool, right?
Profile Codes to Add Friends
To instantly friend someone, have them scan your profile code. This profile code is unique and you can find it on the top left corner of the application by tapping your profile icon. Press “My Code” to see your code. You can also click on “scan code” to scan somebody else’s code.
Play Games to Relax
You can play any of the many games like Pacman and Snake available on messenger. Invite your friends to compete with them. All you have to do is start a conversation, press the plus sign, and tap games. You can play the game either alone or challenge a friend for more fun!
Keep Your Conversations Secret
One of the most valuable features of Messenger is that you can have encrypted (secret) conversations. The governments or even the Facebook team cannot see these conversations. Similar to WhatsApp, these conversations use end-to-end encryption. Simply start a conversation and tap “Secret” in the top right corner. Select a friend you want to have a secret conversation with and you’re good to go. You can click on the “clock icon” to set a time limit to make your messages disappear.
Customize to Perfection
In a group chat, you can change the color of the chat. Moreover, you can also give nicknames to your friends. You can also replace the “Thumbs Icon” to set a group emoji.
Share Pretty Much Everything
By using third-party apps, you can do a lot more with your Messenger app. Just by adding the Kayak extension, you can share flight options for combined trips. Additionally, you can share recipes from Food Network, restaurants from OpenTable, and songs from Spotify, etc.
Scribble Chat for 3D Animations
Using the 40+ animations from Scribble Chat you can turn your messages into 3D animations. Start a conversation, tap the plus sign present in the bottom left corner, and then swipe left to tap Scribble Chat.
Share Audio Recordings
Another very useful feature is audio recording. Sometimes, typing is really taxing on the fingers especially after a tiring day at work. The audio recording feature comes in real handy at such times. Just press the microphone button and start speaking. Release it upwards to cancel it and let go of it to send the recording.
Talk to Bots
If you have no one to talk to or are going through a tough day and need some time to relax then chat with messenger bots. Surprisingly, you can get a lot of info from these interactive chatbots. You can also place orders and play games. These friendly bots can also provide you news updates. Just tap “discover” in the bottom right corner and select a bot that interests you. You’re good to chat now!
Generally, you can contact any state department, restaurant, bank, service provider, etc., and submit a query or place an order. These automated bots will reply. I remember I used to call the Spectrum phone number every time I had an internet problem. Thanks to these chatbots, I can now just text them and get an instant response from the bots. As soon as a representative gets these messages, they respond with the solution, and life’s good! Normally, it doesn’t take them much time either!
Make full use of the many good features that the Messenger app has to provide. I am glad to find myself interacting with my friends and family in a fun way every now and then! Explore it to find out more!
