Facebook Messenger is getting in the mood of March Madness with a new secret basketball game on the app. Vice President of Messaging Products at Facebook David Marcus posted a basketball emoji and the words “hint, hint” on March 17, along with the activity ‘playing basketball.’
Users of the messaging app can start a virtual basketball competition between them by sending a basketball emoji and then double-tapping (once the app has been updated).
It seems like the game has been a major hit with users and has been distracting them from studying, sleeping and all sorts of other daily activities.
So if you send the basketball emoji in Facebook messenger you can play a game of basketball against your friends! 🏀 pic.twitter.com/6rPLxLDjxv— Mrs. B (@HisFloridaBride) March 18, 2016
