Rumours have been swirling and quiet beta rollouts have been, um, rolling for months, and now the truth is out: new Messenger and Instagram features are finally here.
Update your Messenger app to access the highly anticipated Watch Together feature, which (as previously reported) can be used to stream content while you’re in a video chat. In your next Messenger video chat, simply swipe up to view an options menu and select Watch Together. Here, you’ll find TV and movies to view, including Facebook original content like Post Malone’s Celebrity World Pong League.
With this latest update, you’ll also have access to chat themes to personalize the backdrops and colors of your conversations — yes, there’s tie-dye, thank goodness — as well as selfie stickers, animated message effects, and custom emoji reactions.
