TRY IT: Facebook has hidden a game of chess inside its app

Fans of Facebook Messenger might be surprised to know there’s a neat little game hidden inside the app. The classic game of chess has been sneaked into the Facebook messaging service and can only be accessed with a secret code.

If you fancy a game, then you can challenge your mates by sending the simple message “@fbchess play“.

As soon the message is sent a basic chess board will pop-up on the screen and you can begin playing straight away.
