How To Play Basketball Game On Facebook Messenger

  • While on the Messenger ap, Open the emoji window,
  • Tap on the basketball emoji, and send it to a friend.
  • Then tap on the ball in your message and the basketball game will show up.

You have to swipe the screen in other to get the ball into the hoop. It’s quite interesting if you ask me.

Please note: You have to update the messenger app to its latest version. As seen on the screenshot above, I used an iPhone but yes, it works very well on android. Just be sure you are using the latest version of the app.
