Today Facebook updated their Messenger application to bring Instant Games to Messenger, allowing you to play games with your friends whilst messaging them at the same, and with one billion people using Messenger a month, there should be lots of people to play against.

With the new feature, you can also challenge your friends, share your scores, and all while making video and voice calls at the same time.

You can check out the new Instant Games in Messenger on your smartphone, or through a web browser. Simply open up the Facebook Messenger app after updating it and then kick off a conversation and from within that conversation menu, tap on the game controller icon and choose the game that you want to play.

You can also play these games in group chats.

The games you can play include a wide variety from Pac-Man all the way up to new games like Words with Friends.
