The fun-sounding feature will kick off with Words With Friends, so instead of merely imagining your opponent's face when you lay down a 100-point word that no one's ever heard of, you'll soon have the fun of seeing their reaction when they realize what you've done. The feature will allow friends to video chat while simultaneously playing a game against each other.
Facebook also revealed a new suite of games set to come to Messenger.
In addition to livestreaming within Instant Games, Facebook will also launch next year a video chat feature for multiplayer games - beginning with Words With Friends - whereby two players can initiate a gaming session with a video call in Messenger.
