The day that couples have been dreading for months has finally arrived. “Facebook came out with their Messenger app, and now my match just won’t stop trying to send me messages!” said Bethany.”But I don’t even have a Facebook account,” replied her friend.

In spite of Facebook’s best efforts, many couples still prefer communicating via text message. To ease the pain of switching from one app to another, Facebook has introduced a new feature that allows users to send each other sweet nothings in between texts. The feature is called “Valentine’s Day,” and it will automatically replace words with a heart emoji.

“It’s like we’re already married!” said one delighted user. Facebook has responded to the positive reaction by hinting at future updates, including a “baby emoji” and an “anniversary candle.” The company is also refusing to rule out the possibility of adding custom emoji packs for special events such as birthdays and religious holidays. Couples everywhere will just have to wait and see.

“I’m in a live-in relationship, and we’re thinking of combining our accounts,” said one Facebook user. “Maybe when that happens I’ll finally get some messages from my match!”

How to use the Facebook Messenger Valentines feature

To use this feature, you must have the latest version of Facebook Messenger installed on your device. Once that is complete, users can simply tap a heart emoji to automatically change words into hearts.

Note: This feature works best if you use “Valentine’s Day” as a default keyboard replacement for all applications. Please note that due to the heavy demand for this feature, if you are running low on storage space or battery life, Facebook recommends turning this off until your device is connected to Wi-Fi.
