Facebook Messenger Just Added a Bunch of Features for the Super Bowl

Including new frames, stickers and art

Facebook Messenger is decking itself out for Sunday’s Big Game.

The social network added new frames, stickers and art to its messaging application in advance of Super Bowl LI, as well as highlighting how some brands’ chat bots can be of service.

Facebook said in an email to Social Pro Daily:

Starting today, new camera frames, stickers and art will be available that include a football helmet mask, football-related stickers and falling football effects.

To add the frames to your conversations:

Open up the Messenger app.

Tap the circular camera button in the bottom bar.

Take a photo or video, and tap the smiley face icon in the top-right corner to find the Big Game frames. Tell your friends you’re “Just Here for the Commercials,” or make it rain tailgating food.

Some of the stickers added to Messenger are pictured below:

The social network added that masks featuring their team colors can be added as face paint or eye black, starting at midnight Thursday and running through Monday, and these can also be used in live video chats.

Finally, Facebook recommended chat bots from The Score for live updates and highlights; Domino’s for pizza and wings; and Niro for previewing Kia’s Super Bowl ad featuring Melissa McCarthy.
