    It takes us to the applications that are related and connected to Facebook Messenger
    .
    One is already installed. We can see it here; it is above the line. Also, there are applications that are below the line. Those are Facebook Messenger suggested applications. As soon as they are downloaded they will be inserted in our Facebook Messenger. We will be able to send GIF files, memes, and other interesting things. Right now we have one application installed already. Let's give it a tap. It's a GIPHY application.
