Messenger teams up with Netflix’s Stranger Things to get you ready for Stranger Things Day!

Tomorrow is the 4th annual Stranger Things Day, a fan holiday commemorating the day that Will Byers disappeared into the Upside Down in episode 1, Season 1 of Stranger Things. Netflix has a host of surprises and news lined up to celebrate the day with friends and fans – including us at Messenger! That’s why we’ve teamed up with Netflix to create custom Stranger Things artwork in anticipation of the big day — this includes all new soundmojis and custom stickers for your camera and chat threads (also available on Instagram), a chat theme, and brand new Group Effects to enjoy with friends and family on video calls, including a 360- degree background and an interactive AR effect. Be prepared to scream with your squad! The ‘Upside Down’ is coming to you (virtually, of course!).

Messenger’s Stranger Things artwork creates an immersive, dynamic world for you to explore while connecting with your friends. Fans will recognize specific scenes and iconic imagery from the show…along with plenty of surprises! Is that the Demogorgon in the background behind you? Maybe. Does your fellow ‘dingus’ now eerily resemble Eleven? Perhaps. 

Whether you prefer playing Dungeons and Dragons with your pals at the Byers house or embarking on a hunt for demogorgons with Will and Lucas, you can access these special new effects all November through the Messenger camera, on video calls, and via Messenger chats. Below are steps on how to access the effects 🤳


From all of us at Messenger, happy Stranger Things Day!
