Due to go live on Facebook Messenger today (August 8th, 2018) are two new video games using AR filter technology to allow users to challenge their friends at the same time as catching up with them on video chat. The multiplayer video chat AR games allow you to play with up to six people at a time, making the gaming experience much more interactive and social, claims Facebook Messenger. The two games which are due to be released today are:
- Don’t Smile: Practise your poker face whilst challenging friends to see who can keep a straight face the longest with Don’t Smile – whoever cracks first will see their face morph into a big goofy grin.
- Asteroids Attack: When playing the game, you’ll find a spaceship perched on your nose. Move back and forth to protect the spaceship from falling asteroids and unlock the asteroid blaster as they come down on the screen.
