Hi everyone, The day after Messenger Day rolled out globally I was able to reverse engineer the private API that Messenger uses to fetch your friends' stories so I hacked together a quick little page that lets you view them on the web. Simply sign in with Facebook, (no extra permissions needed - the app only needs your access token to authenticate the API request) and voilà, your friends' Messenger Days are magically there. It might be boring if only 2 of your friends have a story on their Messenger Day (like me), but hopefully Messenger Day catches on. It took Instagram Stories a while to catch on. Speaking of Instagram Stories, I made a similar web app called Matcha that lets you view Instagram Stories on the web (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) and Chrome IG Story which lets you view them in Chrome (https://www.producthunt.com/post...). Thanks and I hope you have a great (messenger ) day!

@calialec Downloading is borderline creepy, haha! Nice hack! Been using the Chrome IG extension.

@binoyxj Hahaha, true. I've learned from Chrome IG Story that a good chunk of my users really love the download feature, so I decided to add a visible download button by default on each Messenger Day story. People love hoarding "ephemeral" moments 😛

@calialec Heh! Don't settle. A product to share the same stuff to all Stories/ Day app in 1-click is what I dream of 😄

@binoyxj Awesome, this is something that @freddieiboy and I started working on a few months back. Here's a little teaser: https://devpost.com/software/moc...
