Facebook is also launching new features that they previewed to developers at their annual F8 conference. Those features allow developers to create unique game bots that can communicate with players about new levels and rewards.

Messenger will now support turn-based games instead of just single-player games with score leaderboards. One of the first games to take advantage of the new gameplay features is Zynga's Words With Friends.

Depending on what device you use and where you are located, there are now up to 50 games titles available on Messenger, with more being introduced almost every week. Facebook said that they are very excited about bringing the world's #1 pool game - Miniclip's 8 Ball Pool - to Instant Games very soon.
