Facebook introduces new Valentine's Day features for Messenger

Feeling the Love with Messenger

Pressing it will lead you to the chat between you and your loved one where a shower of hearts will pour on your screen.

"This isn't a Valentine's Day promotion". Facebook will then display a prompt to set custom emoji, nicknames, and colors for the chat.

More than 1.3 billion people use Facebook Messenger each month, and 70 million use it every day.

Messenger has become a special place for people to connect and share with other people whether making plans or chatting with friends, family, and loved ones.

Why? Because Facebook knows that these days true love is best expressed in emojis.

Finally, Messenger will automatically put your loved one to the top of the list in your Active Chats window so you'll always have fast access.

During Valentine's day, people usually go the extra mile to treat their loved ones and as usual corporations want to get on this hype train. And red is the most popular personalized chat color along with heart the most popular custom emoji.

This is not the first time Facebook celebrates the loveliest of days - a year ago the company released another bunch of filters and camera borders for Messenger, including some anti-love ones.

Last year's Valentine's Day was the most active on Messenger and Facebook and we are excited to see whether it follows the same this year as well.

Also, Messenger Camera tomorrow will bring a new heart eyes filter (plus will show an animation if you open your mouth), while a falling candy heart effect will also be available, plus a Queen of Hearts filter, too.

Facebook made some additions to camera and video chat filters.

Expressing love: the customized emoji in the lower right-hand corner will make it easier to express love.
