Facebook Messenger Code: Now scan to start chatting


On April 18, 2017, Facebook announced a couple of new features that it’s set to add to the Messenger app. The features include a M virtual assistant which will allow users to order food online from, a game tab that provides access to Game bots and Rich Gameplay.
