Facebook has integrated augmented reality (AR) features into its Messenger app's video chats through wacky games to help users have more fun or break the ice with newly added friends.
"For the moments when we can’t be together IRL, Messenger video chat helps you connect in real-time with the people you care about most. We’re excited to make connecting with your friends in video chat even more fun – and competitive! – with multiplayer video chat AR games," says
Messenger product manager Nora Micheva.
