Here are the best iOS 10 Messages apps, including sticker packs, games and apps for iMessage that you can use on any iOS 10-running iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device.
Now that iOS 10 is here, people are getting their first chances to spend some time with one of the marquee features added as part of the update, and that’s apps, games and stickers that are built right into the Messages app. Bringing apps that live inside Messages to iOS is an interesting addition to iOS 10 and one that could potentially have a large impact on the way we communicate.
With iOS 10 just a few hours old, the App Store is just beginning to fill with apps that take advantage of Apple’s new APIs in the update, and that’s no different for those that class themselves as Messages apps, either. We’ve found a handful that you might want to give some time right now though. These include stickers in sticker packs that you can send as a new message or attach as tapbacks to recipient’s message bubbles, apps that lets you send money, song lyrics, restaurant reservation, movie listing, and more, and last but not the least, games that you can play together with your friends and family right within the Messages app.
So without further ado, let’s have a look what’s in the App Store right now for the new Messages app in iOS 10.
