Android App FaceBook Messenger Tips and Tricks

  1. Turn off notification alerts on the Android Facebook Messenger app
    You know how it is: someone starts a group conversation asking if anybody wants to buy their leather sofa, and before you know it you’re getting non-stop buzzes about upholstery. If you’ve ever found yourself in a similar situation, here's a couple of tips for how to stop receiving those notifications without actually leaving the conversation.

    How to turn off Facebook Messenger notifications for a single conversation:

    1. Launch the Facebook Messenger app
    2. In your conversations tab (the far left tab), tap and hold on the conversation you wish to mute
    3. Tap Mute notifications
    4. Select the length of time you want the notifications to be muted for

    How to turn off Facebook Messenger notifications for all conversations on Android:

    1. Launch the Facebook Messenger app
    2. Tap the settings menu (the cog wheel)
    3. Tap Notifications & Sounds
    4. Tap the toggle at the top of the page to turn notifications On or Off
    5. Select the length of time you want the notifications to remain muted for

    How to make a voice call in Facebook Messenger
    Did you know that Facebook Messenger allows you to make free calls? Well, you probably did. But are you taking advantage of it? Simply tap on the call button (highlighted below) in one of your conversation windows and you will begin calling the person in that conversation.


    How to make a group shortcut for Facebook Messenger
    If there's a crew you talk to all the time, then why not bypass the app launching altogether and pin a group chat shortcut to your home screen? Just go to your Groups tab where you can select an existing group or create a new one and tap the little menu button on the top right of the Group tile. From here simply select ''Create shortcut'' to have a chat group shortcut added to your home screen.


    Did you know you can take a photo direct from the keyboard in Messenger? See that little camera icon? Tap that to turn your keyboard space into a mini viewfinder (which you can also expand). You can switch between the front or back mounted cameras and snap a quick pic with the vertical send button rather oddly placed right in the middle of the viewfinder. Tap the little image icon next to the camera to choose from previously taken pics.


    How to send a big thumbs up with Facebook Messenger
    If you're feeling a little like Miley Cyrus and have a need for a particularly big thumbs up, then just press and hold the Like button to inflate the size of your thumb. If a simple Like won't do the trick then hit that little emoji button at the end of the text entry field, hit your sticker collection or revert to your device's emoji supported keyboard for a bit more expressive flair.


    How to send or view a location with Facebook Messenger
    If you want a super easy way to let your friends know where you are Facebook, all you need to do is send a message. As long as you have "location" enabled in your settings, they will be able to see where you are.

    Similarly, if your friend has it enabled, simply tap on a message to bring up the location from which is was sent. If you don't want to share your location at all, head to your settings and uncheck that "location" box.

    Ang liit ng free phone memory mo. Magbawas ka po ng apps na nasa phone memory. Try mo kaya maglipat sa sdcard mo. Or mag clear cache ka.

  12. Keep sharing po.
