Meta also indicates that with this command, the message will get the best view and no one will be able to miss it. Including those who were going to silence the group.
As opposed to silent messages
But it should not be abused. Because now you can warn your friends in all circumstances, you should consider leaving them alone.
If you are a fan of messages late at night (or early in the morning), and to prevent your contacts from receiving dozens of notifications when they wake up, you can now use the function /silent.
They will be able to quietly read your messages in their spare time. Meta states that this function is already in Instagram (in silent format).

In the future, other shortcuts will be published on Messenger. If the first two are formalized, no release date is given for the others.

- /Pay : to send money. But only in countries where this feature is available, which is not the case in France.
- / desk : To send this emoji (turn a table): (╯° □°） ╯︵ ┻━┻
- / shrug my shoulder : To send another emoji shrugging her shoulders: ¯ \ _ (ツ) _ / ¯
Other shortcuts may appear later to simplify the use of Messenger.
