The iOS 10 update makes the Messages app become another ground to play loved games and apps when you are bored. And there are plenty of nice iMessage apps to play, such as Pigeon, Quiktionary, 8ball and Mr.Putt. But recently some people complained they can’t play some iMessage games with their contacts.
“Some of my friends and i wanted to play 8ball, but when they ‘request’ the game, it just sends a picture. but when i send a request and i click on it, it says it’s waiting for the opponent. It’s the same on the other side for my friends (it sending a picture and not the game)”
As we found, you might get some other issues on iMessages games and apps, like:

- Can’t install and update iMessage games and apps.
How to Fix iMessage Games Not Working
