Presently, the social network giant is running small tests ahead of its launch in other regions. However, it is unclear about the feature expanding beyond Poland. It is unknown at this moment about the company plans of bringing the feature to the US.

Snapchat is quite popular in US and Canada with more than 60 million users, an aggressive push of Messenger Day might annoy them. But it’s quite an acceptable thing to experiment in the countries where Snapchat isn’t much familiar.

Instagram Stories is a clone of Snapchat Stories, and Insta CEO said: “They deserve all the credit.”

 “We know that people come to Messenger to share everyday moments with friends and family. In Poland we are running a small test of new ways for people to share those updates visually. We have nothing more to announce at this time,” says a Messenger Spokesperson.

It is found that most of the features resemble Snapchat stories which enable to draw or add text to images. Another significant innovation by facebook’s Messenger Day is making use of photographic filters for suggesting what to share, where Snapchat relies on suggesting events or showing locations using geo-filters.

Facebook is planning to take this casual sharing option everywhere before Snapchat. It is believed that Messenger Day may not attract many people, but surely it could provide a tough competition to Snapchat’s growth.
