Messenger seems to use1 KaTeX, so you can follow the commands outlined in KaTeX's wiki. There are too many to list here.

$$ \frac{1}{\frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{3}} $$

$$ E = \frac{mc^2}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^2}{c^2}}} $$

If you want to type a TeX equation inline, wrap it like \( ... \) instead of $$ ... $$.

Did you know that \( \sin 2\alpha = 2 \sin \alpha \cos \alpha \) ?

Did you know that ?
