Facebook has announced that it is rolling out a new chat experience for Messenger and Instagram featuring animated BTS character TinyTAN. Starting November 18, users can access and activate the TinyTAN chat theme for a unique chat experience on Messenger and private messaging on Instagram. You can now set up a Room and use immersive 360 AR backgrounds to explore the bedroom and cafe from the TinyTAN universe. By moving your camera around, you can find all seven TinyTAN characters.
You can set up these rooms on both Messenger and Instagram when video-calling with other users. Other users who are familiar with the “Magic Door” of TinyTAN will recognize the bedroom and cafe backgrounds in the video call.
How to Use TinyTAN Chat Experience
As the new chat feature is released for both Messenger and Instagram messaging platforms, there is a slight difference in the way you use them. On Messenger, Facebook will integrate TinyTAN into the messaging platform with its sticker pack. You can just download the special TinyTAN sticker pack to use it for expressing yourself. Notably, these stickers will be free to use for all users. Moreover, there is a TinyTAN chat theme for both the messaging platforms of Facebook — the Facebook Messenger and the new Instagram Messenger.
To use the TinyTAN chat theme on respective messengers, you can activate it by going to your chat settings and then tap Theme to select TinyTAN. For TinyTAN 360 backgrounds, you need to create a Room on the respective messenger and then tap the “Effects” button. Next, select the TinyTAN background from the options on your screen. Messenger users can also access these backgrounds from the video call or the camera.
Those of you who don’t know what’s TinyTAN — it is a group of characters created from the seven BTS members. Each TinyTAN character has a personality of its real-life counterpart. But, there is a unique narrative to each character in the TinyTAN universe.
