Facebook Messenger now lets you start a chat by scanning profile codes
April 8, 2016 - Uncategorized
Becoming friends with someone on Facebook Messenger just became a lot easier.
In a new update that started to roll out Thursday, Facebook’s chat app now has Messenger Codes — circular patterns around a user’s profile photo, which can be scanned to start a chat with that person.
Facebook also launched Messenger Links — short vanity URLs that lead to a user’s Messenger profile, in the form of “m.me/username.”
