Here’s How To Play The Hidden Chess Game In Facebook Messenger

We probably never would’ve known there is actually a game hidden within the messenger app we use everyday.

This isn’t another Facebook app, the game is played right inside the messenger app and no extra software is needed.

The great thing about it is that it runs flawlessly on all platforms. Whether you’re using Facebook web version or you’re using the mobile app, the game remains accessible.
