Messenger announced the celebratory effect, called Nugget Cheers, just in time for New Year’s Eve.
The interactive AR Group Effect pairs champagne with chicken nuggets to create a new virtual toast when using Meta’s group AR option on Messenger or Instagram video calls.

To use Nugget Cheers, follow the instructions:
- Start a video call with whoever you want. Remember: You both have to be following each other.
- Tap the Effects smiley.
- Swipe over to Group Effects.
- Click on the chicken nugget icon and enjoy.
