Facebook is testing a way to get updates about current events and trending topics within Messenger.

Some users are seeing an option to subscribe to updates about the World Series in the Facebook Messenger app.

It’s unclear what other topics are being tested at the moment. When a person writes¬†“@WorldSeries subscribe” within a conversation, they’ll get updates about the current World Series between the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals.

The person can stop updates by writing “@WorldSeries unsubscribe.”

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to SocialTimes that this is something the site is testing among a small group of U.S. Facebook users.
