New Delhi: In order to honour the spirit of UEFA Euro 2016 championship, Mark Zuckerberg-owned Facebook has come up with a new football game hidden as an Easter egg inside its messenger app.

Users willing to use this game named KeepyUp can enter the football emoji to start it. One needs to have the latest version of the messenger app for Android or iOS in order to activate it.

As per a report published in gadgets.ndtv.com, you just need to send the football emoji in any conversation inside the Facebook Messenger app. Tap on the emoji after sending it, and Messenger opens the game up automatically.

The challenge is to keep the football from touching the ground. The game keeps your best score intact for the next time you use the emoji and want to replay.

The interface is simple, with the ball bouncing about the white screen, more vigorously as the level advances. Users can easily exit the game, and back to their conversation whenever they feel like. There's no pausing the game though, you'll have to end it to continue chatting.
