If you’re someone who primarily communicates via Facebook, chances are you also use Messenger, Facebook’s messaging platform that connects Facebook users. According to an announcement from Meta, Facebook’s parent company, they have now released some shortcut updates for the app.
According to the announcement, these shortcuts are designed to help make it easier for users to use certain features. For example, there’s now an “@everyone” tag that notifies everyone in a group chat at once. Previously, users could only “@” specific people, so this change makes it easier to ping everyone at once, similar to the “@everyone” feature in apps like Discord.
There will also be new shortcuts like “/silent” which will allow you to send a message without notification, perfect when you know the other person is busy and you don’t want to disturb them but want to send a message at the same time. Then there will also be shortcuts to send money through messenger and in the future there will be more shortcuts like “/gif” which will make it easier for users to find GIFs in their chat.
Some of these shortcuts appear to be exclusive to iOS for now, but presumably they should make their way to Android at some point.
