Using Slash Commands

A forward slash " / " command enables you to perform popular tasks by entering a forward slash followed by a keyword in the Compose Message field in Messenger. After you type the slash, and then select an available command, you can tap Send on the smartphone app screen, or press Enter on the keyboard for Desktop for Web or the Desktop App to execute the slash command.

Slash commands are categorized based on context. For example, the slash command /leaveroom is applicable and available only for rooms that are part of a team, and the slash command /add is applicable only while composing chat messages.

Note: Slash commands are visible only to you and not to other participants in a chat message thread or in a team room.

If you need help to find a slash command, Kore Assistant can help you.
