Last month, during Facebook's F8 conference, the social media service revealed that they were preparing a series of new options and features for Messenger.
In addition to this, the company has also made new features available for developers which will allow them to create more engaging games with rich gameplay - all inside the Messenger app. According to the company, turn-based gameplay is the most requested feature by users and now it has landed on the app with the Instant Games on Messenger update.
The new Instant Games on Messenger will roll out over the next few weeks worldwide for both iOS and Android starting today. Downloads are also not always as smooth as desired and this has discouraged many users from downloading games from the Play Store.

Some of the newly added games include high-profile titles like Words With Friends and Blackstorm's EverWing. Facebook recently introduced "Game Bots" as well.
