The holidays are here, and Messenger is making it easier than ever to use Stories to convey your holiday mood in the moment with those who matter most to you.
Festive Filters and Stickers
This holiday season, Messenger has several filters to help you get into the festive spirit. You can show off your impressive holiday cookies with a lights-themed soft focus filter, or share a photo from Hawaii with “snow” in the background. To try these filters, tap the camera icon in your Messenger app and swipe left to discover ones that best suit your holiday self!
Over the next few weeks, you’ll see festive camera stickers to decorate your favorite memories. These seasonal stickers will add some holiday cheer to your photos and videos.
Quick Emoji Reactions
In the U.S., Christmas was the #1 holiday for emoji sends in 2018 surpassing New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day. Reacting to a friend’s Story is easier than ever, with our emoji reactions. Simply tap on an emoji at the bottom of the Story and watch as a shower of hearts and smiley faces flood the screen. And, hopefully it will spark a conversation with a friend.
Cherish your Favorite Memories
Although what you share disappears from your Messenger Story after 24 hours, they can be lasting memories for you. If you want to revisit all your special moments, just tap on your profile picture icon on the left, click on Story and turn on Archive Stories. If you already have this featured turned on, tap “View Story Archive” to relive and repost your favorite moments.
