San Francisco, July 28 (TIWN) Social networking giant Facebook is removing its feature Instant Games out of Messenger and adding it to the Facebook Gaming tab on the main app.

"With our focus on creating a central Instant Games experience on Facebook, and as Messenger moves to be faster, lighter and simpler, we recently started migrating Instant Games play sessions from Messenger to Facebook and the Facebook Gaming tab," Leo Olebe, Global Director, Games Partnerships, Facebook wrote in a blog-post on Saturday (July 27).  With games like Pac-Man and Words with Friends Frenzy, Facebook introduced Instant Games on Messenger in 2016, aiming to boost user-engagement with the platform.  "To ensure a smooth transition, players in Messenger will continue to access games through thread updates and chatbots, while gameplay itself will app-switch to Facebook," Olebe said.
