Have you heard of Facebook’s Messenger Day feature? Well, if it sounds a lot like Snapchat, it’s because it basically is Snapchat. This lets you instantly share pictures and videos as a daily record with friends, family, and so on, but at the end of 24 hours, it all disappears. And it works through the standalone Messenger app for Android, therefore you must learn to share a Facebook Messenger Day Story on Android.
Messenger Day appears above your chat threads on Messenger’s home screen, employing a bold design that it’s impossible not to see, not to mention that you can add art, effects, and doodles to your photos and videos before sharing them.
However, Snapchat does have a few key features that Messenger Day doesn’t have, such as the option to save your whole Day as a video and export, an option to choose how long a photo appears, stickers that can be pinned to objects, FaceSwap, and Bitmoji-like avatars.
