Facebook Messenger is getting a new feature just for Valentine’s Day

Carl Kinsella

Have you noticed a new button on your Messenger app?

Facebook is getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit by adding a Valentine’s Day button to the Messenger app.

The way it works is you click the heart with an arrow through it above the thumb button, and type your message to whoever you’re chatting to.

When you hit send the message is gift wrapped and made all secret, so whoever gets it has to click on the image to ‘unwrap’ it and see what you’ve said.


Is it the cheesiest thing ever? Yes absolutely. Are you still going to use it as an excuse to message the girl you like tomorrow? We bet you will.
