Facebook Messenger updates are always fun.
We know about the secret inbox that came to light recently and the addictive Facebook basketball game, but it turns out there are a few others flying under the radar.

The internet is a paradise for cute animal lovers, and this Facebook command will brighten up anybody’s day.
Simply type in “@dailycute” into the text bar and click send. The person/people in your Messenger conversation will then be bestowed with the gift of a random photograph of an adorable animal from the image sharing website Imgur (along with a blurb with a bit of information about the animal.)
I know seeing pictures of cute creatures boosts my endorphins, and there is no limit to the amount of ‘@dailycute” commands you can use in a day.
The second game you might not know about is Facebook Chess. It’s slightly more cerebral than basketball or a heartwarming picture of a pug, but it’s a good way to foster some healthy competition between yourself and your friends.
All you do to start the game is type in ‘@fbchess play’ and a board will appear in the message box. To make your moves, there are a few keys to remember:
K stands for King, Q for queen, B for Bishop, N for knight R for rook, and P for pawn.
So, to move your knight to square D4, you type ‘@fbchess ND4’. Simples.
Great news for those people whose days vastly improve with the appearance of puppies or some intense, competitive strategy gaming.
