Bored? How about shooting a few hoops? Well, thereā€™s a basketball game hidden in Facebookā€™s Messenger app. Hereā€™s how to play.

Starting a game is easy. First, make sure you have the latest version of Messenger (you can update for Android or iOS). Then, send a Facebook basketball emoji to a friend on Messenger. Finally, tap it to load the game.


A hoop will appear as will a series of basketballs at the bottom of the screen. You just need to swipe up to try and get them in. After a while the hoop will start moving to give you more of a challenge.

Yes, itā€™s a gimmick for March Madness. But itā€™s still quite fun.
