Here are our best Facebook Messenger tips and tricks for Android.

Turning off notification alerts for Facebook Messanger
Have you ever been in a group where many trashes are been said, or in a group that disturb your peace with messages when you try to just a quicky update on facebook, you can actulaly stop receiving those notifications without actually leaving the conversation. I have been in that siuation were i get many messages from a particular group not until I applied some tricks that help me do away with that particular distorbance.

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

  • Launch the Facebook Messenger app.
  • In your conversations tab (the far left tab), tap and hold on the conversation you wish to mute.
  • Tap Mute notifications.
  • 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:

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

Start an Encrypted Secret Conversation
Facebook rolled out one-to-one encrypted communications using Facebook Messenger in 2016, AKA "Secret Conversations." Here it is using the Signal Protocol, which is specifically designed for just you and one other person.

First of all you will have to enable Secret Conversations on your device (it can only be active on one device at a time). After this, hit the chat head icon on the top right, scroll to Secret Conversations, and toggle it on. Once you've done this, open a chat with any of your contacts and click on the little "i" icon in the top-right corner. After this, just select "Secret Conversation."

As a timely reminder, the Secret Conversation mode is not to everyone's taste as end-to-end encryption breaks some features in Messenger, like using it across multiple devices, archiving past conversations, and sending things like animated GIFs.

Make a voice call in Facebook Messenger

Though whatsapp have taking over free voice call, but what of when you are not online on whatsapp but decided to check sometihings out with your PC and also have a conversation with your friend on facebook, then you run into that your friend you have always want to talk to on call? you can actually do that with your facebook messanger app.

To do this Simply tap on the call button (highlighted below) in one of your conversation windows and you will begin calling the person in that conversation.

Send a picture with Facebook Messenger
you can actualy take a photo directly 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.

Send or view a location with Facebook Messenger
Facebook has made everything very easy for us, have you ever wanted to  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 it was sent. If you don't want to share your location at all, head to your settings and uncheck that "location" box.

Find friend suggestions
Facebook Messenger helps you connect with people by providing friend suggestions based on mutual connections. You can even add a contact in Messenger without having to set things up with a new friend request.

  • Open Messenger and tap on the menu option with the three dots at the bottom of the screen.
  • Enter Message Requests
  • Scroll down to see which new friends have been suggested for you. 
  • Tap the add button to include the person in your Messenger contacts.
  • You'll now be able to chat with your new contact via Facebook Messenger.

Find phone numbers for your contacts in Facebook Messenger
The only way you'll be able to find this out depends on your contact's privacy and security settings. If your friends have their details set to "only me," you won't be able to see them. You can see whether your friends have made their details available with the following steps:

  • Open Messenger and tap on the menu option with the three dots at the bottom of the screen.
  • Scroll down through your list of friends. Tap on the three dots next to the person you're wanting to contact and select "Contact info."
  • A box will appear containing the status of the contact and their contact number.

Poll Your Friends

To get a group of persons to come to a decision on anything can be a frustrating process. Facebook Messenger now allows you to poll your friends when they're in a group chat.

At the bottom of the group chat window, go to the "..." icon. Click on the "Create a Poll" option to create your own poll, and then add in your own polling selections. All you need to do then is sit back and wait for the tyranny of the majority to do the thinking for you.

Send a GIF in Facebook Messenger
For a while now Facebook Messenger has had a dedicated GIF button in the Facebook Messenger app, which allows you to use images from outlets like Giphy and Riffsy.

  • Open a Facebook Messenger chat and tap the GIF icon.
  • Scroll through the GIFs and tap twice on the image you want to send.
  • The GIF will appear in the chat and automatically play on a loop.

Turn Facebook Messenger into Snapchat
You don't actually nee a Snapchat to enjoy its features, Last year, the Facebook-owned social media site Instagram introduced a "Story" feature - which for all intensive purposes looked and acted a lot like Snapchat. Facebook Messenger has gotten on board with this idea and introduced "Messenger Day."

Messenger Day allows you to share updates about your day with either all your friends or just a few specific contacts. Don't worry, you don't have to concern yourself with selecting the perfect filter or best angle; all of these messages disappear after 24 hours.
That said, you can do something to make your posts stand out with the artsy selfie filters were released in December. Begin your "Day" by hitting the photo icon at the bottom of your home screen and start recording.

Send money through Facebook Messenger
One of the many things you can now do with Facebook Messenger is sent money via the app. First thing's first, you'll need to set things up. To add a card to Facebook Messenger, select your Facebook icon on the top of the app. Then go Payments > Add New Debit Card. After this, you're ready to go.

To transfer funds in the app, tap on the "..." option and then select "Payment." Select who will receive the money, enter the amount, and then add your payment information.

Interact with a bot
Facebook is jumping headfirst into the chatbotosphere. Bots developed by news organizations like CNN or the Wall Street Journal, for example, deliver news links to your Messenger conversation based on your interests or queries; some allow you to place an order for something directly through Messenger, like for pizza orders or a bouquet of flowers.

Want to talk to an algorithm? Search for bots directly in the "To:" field and start chatting or subscribe to regular updates. A list of available bots can be found on, catering to all your information needs.
