After cloning Snapchat via Instagram Stories and WhatsApp Status, Facebook today announced the worldwide launch of Messenger Day, its Snapchat clone for its messaging client. Messenger Day was first announced in October last year and was made available for limited testing in some countries.
As with Snapchat, one can post and videos in their ‘day’ that will automatically disappear after 24 hours in Messenger Day.
You can share your Messenger Day with all your friends or only your selected friends. Similar to Snapchat, Messenger Day comes with plenty of filters and tools for you to edit your photos and videos before you share them. In total, Facebook says Messenger Day comes with over 5,000 frames, effects, and stickers.
You can also easily add photos and videos that you receive in chats on Facebook Messenger to your Messenger Day by tapping the “add to your day” button that will automatically show up under photos shared with you in a chat.
Messenger Day will be available right within Facebook’s Messenger app. Just make sure to update the app to the latest version. Messenger Day shared by your friends will sit at the top of the app in a horizontal row just like Instagram Stories.
Do you think you will use Messenger Day over Snapchat and Instagram Stories? Or you are just going to stick to Snapchat?
