Bored? How about shooting a few hoops? Well, there’s a basketball game hidden in Facebook’s Messenger app. Here’s how to play.
Starting a game is easy. First, make sure you have the latest version of Messenger (you can update for Android or iOS). Then, send a Facebook basketball emoji to a friend on Messenger. Finally, tap it to load the game.
A hoop will appear as will a series of basketballs at the bottom of the screen. You just need to swipe up to try and get them in. After a while the hoop will start moving to give you a more of a challenge.
Yes, it’s a gimmick. But it’s still quite fun.
