Facebook Messenger announced a partnership with its developer community to provide free services to government health organizations and UN health services to help them use the messaging platform to scale their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The developer partners have offered to provide their services to these organizations for free. As the official blog notes, one of the first cases is the Argentine Ministry of Health, which launches a Messenger experience to provide reliable and timely information about the corona virus.
In addition, Facebook is also creating an online hackathon, in which developers are invited to develop messaging solutions related to social distance and teach people about the pandemic. (ANI)
