This notification will open to a user's Messenger conversation with their significant other, and a shower of emoji hearts will fall across the screen.

Facebook has not said how long the feature will be active for, but it will go live for users on Valentine's Day itself.

Starting tomorrow (or as romantics call it, Valentine's Day Eve), if you change your Facebook relationship status and make it "FB official", a Messenger conversation will pop up with your boo and Facebook will fill your chat with hearts, kissing hearts, and heart showers. The Queen of Hearts, candy rain, and hearts-instead-of-eyes filters are making their first appearance. Chats will be able to be personalized with custom text colour, emoji and nickname, plus your number one will now sit atop your Active tab to prioritize them. Facebook has found that emojis is the new language of love with people sharing more than 2 billion emojis every day using Messenger.

For those who like to personalize their chats, red is the most popular chat color and ❤is the most popular custom emoji.
