Nokia classic Snake is on Facebook Messenger — here’s how to play it
Snake, we all remember countless hours playing it on the bus or in a queue – it was the first true mobile hit. Now we’re more focused on the likes of Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga, but the enduring charm that is Snake hasn’t left our hearts.
Thankfully, Nokia has now brought Snake into the modern age, announcing at this year’s MWC that it has developed Snake for Facebook Messenger. Now, before you go getting excited about the prospect of reliving hours of Snake-based fun, this isn’t quite the game you remember from your youth, but it’s close enough. Unlike the Snake coming to Nokia’s redesigned 3310, this version lets you challenge your Facebook friends to see who the biggest Snake badass is.
Playing Snake on Facebook Messenger is incredibly straightforward too. First you’ll need to make sure you’re running the latest version of Facebook Messenger – just visit the App Store or Google Play store to check whether you need an update.
Once your Facebook Messenger app is up to date, start a new conversation or enter an existing one and look along the bottom of the text-entry field. Here, next to the GIF and Stickers buttons you’ll see a gamepad – tap it and you’ll find a list of all the Messenger-supported games. It’s here you can find Snake and play it to your heart’s content.
