The new ‘Streaks’ feature, which is currently being tested on Facebook Messenger, includes an emoji status which indicates which friends a user is currently in a streak with, implying that the user has messaged the friend for at least two days in a row. The feature encourages users to keep the streak alive by sending at least one message every consecutive day.
A Facebook spokesperson has confirmed the testing, saying that the feature will be a new way ” to see at a glance fun facts about the people you message with”.
