Starting when the clock officially turns to February 14th in your location, Facebook Messenger will offer a slew of Valentine’s Day features for those couples who are madly in love. The company announced the features in a blog post, saying that they allow for you to “feel the love with Messenger.”
Facebook says that starting on Valentine’s Day, when you make your relationship “Facebook official,” you’ll get a Messenger notification that instantly connects you to your new partner. From there, you can make it rain hearts, quickly send the heart eyes emoji, and more:
- It’s raining hearts! A heart shower will fall across your screen.
- Spread the love: Your custom emoji (in the lower right hand corner) will be ￼, so expressing your love will be fast and easy
- Get personal: You’ll be prompted to personalize your chat and set your own custom text color, emoji, and nickname in case you want to switch things up even more.
- Chatting with bae: Your loved one will be the first person to appear on the Active tab, so you can easily see when they’re available to chat.
In the same blog post, Facebook also offers up some statistics on the love that is spread through Messenger. The company says that people share over 2 emoji every day through Messenger, with the kissing face, heart eyes, and traditional heart ranking in the top five.
