Messenger on Wednesday launched "Instant Games" in 30 countries to get users spend more time on its messaging app.

According to a report in Tech Crunch, the 17 "Instant Games" from classic developers like Bandai Namco, Konami and Taito, as well as newer studios like Zynga and King, are available on newer iOS and Android devices, and can be found by hitting the game controller icon in Messenger threads next to the photos and stickers buttons.
