The world’s largest social network, Facebook, is always busy tinkering with its products and services to make social networking even more interesting and fun. It seems like the folks at Menlo Park, CA just can’t sit idle. This time, it’s the turn of Facebook’s own Messenger app that has been updated. Just in time for the holidays, a number of features have been added to Facebook Messenger. These features include a festive frame that you can use to beautify your selfies, as well as cute looking snow globe overlays for chat heads. In addition to that, the app has also been updated with a sizeable selection of Holiday inspired sticker packs, that you can send to your FB buddies on Messenger. However, the biggest feature is Stickered For Messenger, a brand new companion app for Facebook Messenger that lets you add stickers to your photos and share them with your friends. Wanna know more? Let’s find out.
Primary Holiday Centric Features Added To Facebook Messenger
So what exactly does the festive themed update for Facebook Messenger brings to the table? Read on to find out:
1. Beautify Your Selfies With Festive Frames
Facebook Messenger already allows you to directly snap selfies, and share them with your friends. This update adds festive themed frames that you can use to make your selfies even better. Because the only thing better than a selfie is, well, an edited selfie (If you’ve ever heard of Instagram, you’ll know what I mean).
2. Snow Globe Chat Heads
Winters are synonymous with snowfall. And if you love snow, chances are really high that you love snow globes as well. With the latest update to Facebook Messenger, you can have those hovering Chat Heads replaced by snow globes.
3. Stickers Galore
I’m not really sure if there’s any social networking app out there that doesn’t include virtual stickers of some sort. And since it’s holiday season, stickers make even more sense. So Facebook Messenger now consists of a healthy collection of holiday themed stickers that you can send to your buddies. Yay!
4. Stickered For Messenger
Probably the biggest holiday focused update, Stickered for Messenger is a brand new companion app that lets you plaster a whole lot of stickers to your photos, and then share these stickered photos with your Facebook Messenger friends. You can read a detailed review of Stickered for Messenger here.
