I just got a new idea. Currently Instant messengers only allow chatting and most games do not provide a real time chat experience with friends. The idea is like msn games where you can chat and play with your friends at the same time. It can be a mobile app space where you can play games, chat and kill spare times. Do you think this idea can be changed to a mobile app?

Games and IM on the same screen would probably not work on mobile devices. It works on PC because you have so much better control with a mouse than thick sausage fingers. Of course, the screen is also much bigger.

It's also important to differentiate between playing while you're chatting and chatting while you're playing. In the case of MSN, you are playing while you're chatting. Don't bring this kind of chat system into your games, but consider integrating small games into your chat client.

A multi-player games network for friends rather than an IM which can play game. More emphasise on games rather than on IM?

I have created a demo video for my idea. Look good?

Are you interested in the mobile app?

I like this idea. Surpised it hasn't been integrated into facebook messenger or snapchat.

That's not easy to do so. Integrate with games will make snapchat / fb messenger lose their original focuses.
