When Facebook introduced its Messenger Platform at F8 in March, there was speculation that third-party applications for the messaging app would eventually include games. Speculation has become reality.

When Facebook introduced its Messenger Platform at F8 in March, there was speculation that third-party applications for the messaging app would eventually include games. Speculation has become reality.

Facebook confirmed the launch of Doodle Draw for Messenger to Constine, saying:

Currently, we think Messenger Platform is best-suited for apps that focus on content creation and curated content. But one of the reasons we were excited to announce at F8 that Messenger Platform is open to all developers is to see what people build. From there, we’ll think about what else might make sense.
