Messenger Extensions

We’re very excited to officially launch support for Messenger Extensions today, enabling close integration with the Messenger app through webviews. Get information about the user, customize content sharing, and more!

To get started, first add the domain name where your webviews will live to the Domain Whitelist, which can be found in the Messenger Settings dialog under the Messenger Profile tab. Then, for any “Go to URL” card button or persistent menu item, you may check the Use Messenger Extensions checkbox to enable the Messenger Extensions SDK when loading that page. Finally, initialize the library from your client-side JavaScript code and you’re ready to build Messenger data and interactions right into your conversation webviews.

For implementation details, check out Facebook’s documentation.

We greatly appreciate your feedback on this and other platform enhancements. As always, we can’t wait to see what you build!
