Status, like Snapchat's Stories feature, disappears after 24 hours. According to Facebook VP of messaging David Marcus, who spoke with TechCrunch, this will let Facebook Messenger users snap a quick photo, add a frame, and see if any of their friends are up for going grab a coffee or watching a movie, without having to text individual people or post on Facebook itself.

Sounds a lot like Snapchat Stories.

Messenger Day puts a slight twist on the slideshow format with filters and art that appears created to ignite more conversations on Messenger.

While the feature has gone live today, it has been a while since Facebook has been expected to roll it out on the Messenger. Called "Messenger Day", the new feature will allow Messenger users to post updates that disappear after 24 hours.

Further, this Snapchat clone's filters are much easier to see and figure out, as it presents them as rows of labelled tiles that you swipe through. It works through the standalone Messenger app for iOS and Android, thanks to an update that is rolling out now. If you share something to your day that you decide you want to take down, just tap the image at the top of your inbox, then tap the three dots at the bottom right hand corner of your image, and then "Delete".

Then just like Snapchat, you can send to whoever you choose - including close pals, your whole contact list or maybe just your other half (wink wink emoji). You can even add art, effects, and doodles - again, just like in Snapchat.

How do I find Messenger Day?

First make sure you've updated your Messenger app so you have the latest version. Tapping the Camera icon will open the Messenger camera with new features and editing tools. The firm has included the ability to draw on images, write, text and include a number of "special effects". When a photo has been taken to send to a friend there is the option to add it to a Day.

Once you share it to your Day, it will be viewable for 24 hours. You can choose who sees the My Day section, and who does not.

Facebook's approach seems to be more about putting a ceiling on Snapchat's user growth than stealing from its existing user base.

Whether Messenger Day is the answer to Facebook's problem remains to be seen. You can customize how you share by tapping the "more" icon and then choosing "Everyone Except" or "Custom".
