People are obsessed with the new FB Messenger basketball game

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.

Challenge your friends to a basketball game, right from Messenger. Add the basketball emoji in a conversation thread to start playing. Happy #MessengerMadness!
