Play chess with Facebook Messenger

Yes it is possible, but you need to get into it by typing certain words to get it started. Once you’ve started, you can play chess with a friend. What a nice hidden feature in Facebook Messenger I must say.

What do I need?
Works in Facebook Messenger for iOS, Android and in the Web version! (works in MorphOS also!)

How to get it to work?
Write this in the chat field: “@fbchess play” and You start the game! It is random who starts the game.

To move, you just write “@fbchess Pc4” for moving pawn to C4. For moving the queen you can write “@fbchess Qe3” after you have moved one of the pawns blocking her.

So, time to give your friend a challenge? Try and Play chess in Facebook Messenger!
