Facebook Messenger unveils new features called “Shortcuts”

The popular messaging app Facebook Messenger has unveiled a new set of features called Shortcuts, using the commands found in the messaging service.

According to the platform, users of Android, iOS and Android smartphones can now issue commands in the chat window to perform various tasks, and GIFs and ASCII codes can also be sent on Facebook Messenger.

Among the features, users can now type “@everyone” to send a notification to all users in the chat. The command can be used to draw the attention of group members to a message that asks a question, or as a reminder of an old message.

Users can also use the shortcuts on Messenger to send messages to a user or group without notifying them, using the /silent command. Messages sent using this command will not notify the user of the message, which can be useful when messaging friends in different time zones without disturbing them.
