Messenger added a new chat theme that includes Olivia Rodrigo, World Oceans Day, and The Fast Saga to help you personalize and enhance your conversations.
The new chat themes include:
- Olivia Rodrigo: To help fans celebrate the launch of Olivia’s new album, Sour, we released a whimsical chat theme featuring Olivia’s signature face stickers – perfect for sharing your favorite songs off the new album.
- World Oceans Day: Keep your conversations afloat with the new World Oceans Day chat theme, which not only lets you virtually explore the world’s oceans but also promotes sustainability and the importance of keeping our oceans clean for future generations.
- F9: Fast and Furious fans, buckle up and prepare for an adrenaline rush with the new F9 chat theme. It’s the Fast Saga’s 20th anniversary, so time to lock in for a Fast & Furious movie marathon in preparation for the newest story in the series!
Also, Messenger introduces a quick reply bar that helps easier to respond to the content shared by your friends and family. Just tap on the photo or video and send a response through the quick reply bar at the bottom of the screen. Swipe up to exit the full-screen media viewer and head back to your main chat thread.
QR codes and payment links are also added in Messenger that enable you to send and receive money from anyone, even if you’re not Facebook friends. Currently, QR codes and payment links are only limited in the US Messenger users to get the experience of both features. There’s no need to download a separate payment app or add new contacts, the company said.
To access your personal QR code and payment link, visit your Messenger settings and tap “Facebook Pay.” Simply share the payment link or allow your friends to scan your QR code to send or request money.
