However, many users are still unaware of the wealth of tools that come with the handy app.

Luckily, we’ve rounded up three of the most ingenious Messenger tricks you probably didn’t know but should.

Access secret chats

If you want to send messages fully encrypted, you can start a “Secret Conversation”.

These chats use the Signal protocol to set up end-to-end encryption.

To send a secret conversation, click the New Message icon at the top right of the home screen.

Next, tap Secret if you’re using iOS, or toggle the Secret icon to the “On” position if you’re using an Android.

You can also turn an existing chat into a secret conversation by tapping the person’s name at the top of the screen and selecting “Go to secret conversation”.

Please note that these types of conversations appear in a different inbox than your regular messages.

Manage your visibility

If you don’t want others to see when you’re online on Facebook Messenger, there’s a way to hide your status.

“Active status” lets your friends see a green dot next to your profile photo when you’re active in Messenger.

However, you can hide this by tapping your chat head in the top left corner, selecting “Active Status” and turning it off.

However, this feature also hides the status of people from you.

Unlock hidden games

There are certain messages you can send to unlock hidden games.

Send a basketball emoji and tap to unlock a game.

You can also type “@FacebookChess” to start a chess challenge.

This will create a list of games to play with the friend you’re chatting with.
