With the release of iOS 10 for iPhone came the evolution of iMessage Games. Previously what you could do in iMessage was to have conversations, but with the games introduced now, you can take your friends and family on a battle. Chats don’t have to be boring again, but you can catch fun and enjoy gaming with friends via a messaging platform – an innovative feature. The games are turn-based, and while some are iMessage exclusive, others can be played outside the app.

There are other varieties of games, most of which are funny combinations. You get packs like a Justin & Justin pack (Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake), Trump and Clinton pack, Dogs and Cats pack, and a lot more.
