Now, play chess on Facebook Messenger!

New York, Feb 5 (IANS) The Facebook app that enables your conversations with your friends on the popular social network has now made it simple to play chess from a computer or a smartphone.

To play chess on the Facebook Messenger, all you need to do is enter “@fbchess play” to begin playing a game with the person you’re chatting with, cnet.com reported on Wednesday.

To move your pieces, you’ll need to be familiar with the commands used to refer both the pieces and locations on the board. Entering a command such as “@fbchess Pd3” would move a pawn to the corresponding location.

A cheat sheet of piece names was provided by BetaNews: K is for king, Q for queen, B for bishop, N for knight, R for rook and P is for pawn.

If you get stuck you can always enter “@fbchess help” in the conversation’s text field. A list of commands and instructions will then show up.
