Today, it’s hardly seldom to come by on one person not having a Facebook account, and having an account from the world’s number one social networking site, you should be familiar with its Messenger app that sits independently on your smartphone that enables you to send messages and even make video calls with your family and friends. But did you know that Facebook’s Messenger app is not just you plain straight up messenger application?

To our surprise, a gaining number of social networkers have found an embedded game of Chess within the Messenger app that users can invoke by typing “@fbchess play” while chatting. But there’s a catch, since the messaging app is primarily design for you to send texts then playing the game will make you do the same by typing in commands when moving each piece on the board. So if you are comfortable with that then give it a try and let us know your experience. It’s free and fun when you’ll understand the mechanics later on, as it only involves the rules of the game and understanding each block’s position as indicated by the number of horizontal rows and the letter of the block on each column.
