Starting on Wednesday, whenever a couple declares their romantic relationship on Facebook, a Messenger notification will open to their conversation with the loved one with a shower of "heart" across the screen. Lastly, in a bullet point labelled "Chatting with bae", Facebook noted that your significant other will be first to show up in the Messenger Active tab. Once a couple confirms that they are in a relationship, Messenger will automatically open up a chat between the parties. We may have even chosen the face with hearts for eyes, which Facebook says is the third most popular choice globally, following a heart.

The social network announced today that it is rolling out a few updates to Messenger, but you'll only see them "if you newly indicate you're in a romantic relationship on Facebook (AKA make it "FB official")".

For those who like to personalize their chats, red is the most popular chat color and ❤is the most popular custom emoji. Filters like the heart eye filter, falling candy heart effect, the Queen of Hearts filter has been added.

Facebook really wants you to use their platform to connect with your loved ones and it is surprising they made a decision to limit this on Messenger and not extend this to Instagram for example. Facebook is all excited about its new Facebook Messenger updates and features.
