Some of the new World Cup features on Facebook Messenger include:
- New Messenger Camera Effects: Fans across Australia can access special filters in the Messenger Camera, such as ‘green & gold’ face paint and festive wigs to support the Socceroos. These are custom designed for competing teams.
- New Camera Frames: Cheer for your favourite teams with new camera frames that feature the flag of each competing country. You can try out the France vs. Australia frame this coming weekend!
- Start your own tournament with fun games on Messenger:
- Keepie Uppie: Messenger is introducing a new twist to the keepie uppie (football) hidden game in Messenger. Compete while representing the country of your choice – even if they are not officially competing in the World Cup. Send a flag of your choice and a football to your friends in a chat. Tap the ball on the screen to keep the ball in the air. To win, keep in mind one simple thing: don’t drop that ball.
