Facebook Messenger Apps are here!

on Facebook App Developers Forum at Wed May 03, 2017 11:56 am

Facebook announced last year the launch of the beta of Instant Games on Facebook Messenger. Instant Games is an HTML5 gaming platform that lets Facebook users play games on Messenger and in the Facebook News Feed, without the need to download anything.

Today, Zynga, the famous Facebook game developer has launched Words with Friends, the first relatively big game on Messenger, again trying to be the first to capitalize on this new Facebook gaming platform.

Does Facebook Messenger have potential to become a gaming platform? What advantages do you guys see there that Facebook doesn't already have?

Wow, interesting, I played Zynga games a few years back a lot!
I think an ability to run these games on Messenger is great, as in many of them, you play easier having a wide network of friends playing it as well. But what to do, if your FB friends don't play the game you are playing? Sometimes you have to invite strangers, that will help you be better at the game. And while you can have someone on your contact list on Messenger, without adding them to your FB friends list, that's a great solution. You will just add needed strangers to your messenger contact list, without receiving spam and other uninteresting info on your FB wall.

Indeed Facebook can become a successful gaming platform. Few of the major factors are:
Vast user base
Technologically advanced
Huge database
and many more. More over its coming up with the Augmented Reality and it will surely take it to the next level.
