Facebook is bringing its popular Messenger app to the Apple Watch. This application will allow you to send stickers, have conversations, and share your location with friends.

The release, which was revealed by Apple’s senior vice president of operations, Jeff Williams, at Apple’s “Hey Siri” event in San Francisco today, is timed to coincide with the upcoming release of Watch OS 2.

As you can see in the above Facebook post by Messenger-head David Marcus, one of the things that you’ll find with Messenger for Apple Watch is the addition of stickers — yes, those loveable images that can be added to any conversation with just a tap of the wrist.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has created a customized Messenger app for a wearable device. (Note: it’s also available on Android Wear.)

With more than 600 million monthly active users, Facebook Messenger is one of the top places to have a conversation. Making the app available on more devices will certainly give Messenger even greater exposure and perhaps add millions of voices to the conversation.
