Get in to the Star Wars spirit with new Messenger themes and emojis


Star Wars Episode XI The Rise of Skywalker explodes on to theatre screens next week and Messenger has partnered with Disney to help people get into the spirit of the dynamic intergalactic saga.

Ahead of the movie’s global release Messenger users will be able to tap into a few new Star Wars features.

You can create your own chat theme and use reaction emojis of all your favourite Star Wars heroes and villains.

Fans can also join the Resistance and visualise themselves inside Poe Dameron’s X Wing with the Cockpit effect.

And you can also choose between the Dark and Light side of the Force with the dark and light effect.

To turn on the Star Wars chat theme, open a Messenger thread and tap the name of the thread at the top to open the thread settings.

Then, select “theme” where you’ll find the Star Wars chat theme.

And may the Force be with you.
