In addition to rolling out worldwide, Facebook Messenger's Instant Games are also getting beefed-up features and more specialized "Game bots" that allow developers to make the most out of games designed for the originally chat-focused app. One of the most popular game apps of all time, Zynga's Words With Friends, will be available in Instant Games.
Apart from that, Facebook has also announced that it will be launching the slew of new features it had previewed to developers at the annual F8 conference this year. Game bots help re-engage players by calling out new game options and encouraging competition with updates on the leaderboards, the company said in a statement. The HTML5-powered cross-platform gaming experience lets you easily discover, share, and play games on Messenger without having to install new apps. Players will be able to invite and take turns with one another in the famous word game. Facebook will take this opportunity to integrate their new Bots into Messenger.

Instant Games was first launched in closed beta version in November 2016 with arcade titles like Pac-Man and Galaga. Facebook states users should begin to see even more features within games as developers add support for bots.
Facebook says turn-based games were its most requested feature, and so it comes as little surprise that Words With Friends has joined the party. While Messenger may not be your first location to look for games, Facebook said the popularity of the feature is growing rapidly. Given the fidelity and demands of a game, it makes sense to start there as a big showcase as to how the technology can quickly get a big app up and running in a lightweight fashion. The company has also announced that it will soon bring the popular pool game - Miniclip's 8 Ball Pool to Instant Games. Chat is the center of the mobile phone, so users are more likely to use the Instant Games, while chatting.
