Facebook Messenger is one of the most used messaging applications worldwide. The app for Android looks simple at first sight, but like any other apps, it has its tips and tricks to discover. If you are curious to use the app for more than chatting, then you came to the right place. Today we are going to discuss what you can do with Facebook Messenger, from notifications to your location.
If you don’t like to be bothered by notifications, but you have an active group on your Facebook Messenger, you can turn them off. Just tap and hold on the group or contact that you want to mute, click on the bell from the right and mute notification depending on your choice. On the other hand, if you want to be alerted when a new warning comes, go to Settings – Notifications and Sounds – and then press On or Off.
Moreover, the cool thing you can do in Facebook Messenger is to have a secret conversation. The secret conversation can be with only one user, so chose the user and enabled the hidden conversation mode with the person.
More hidden functions in Facebook Messenger
The essential features of Facebook Messenger are well known by now, but we are mentioning them as we want to have them all checked. With Facebook Messenger, you can make a video call or a voice call; you can take pictures from the app and send it, or hold the button to make a short video.
Besides this, Facebook Messenger has the feature to send and view your location as other messaging apps. With the app, you can find friend suggestions thanks to the mutual friends you have; you can create a group shortcut to your home screen for rapid access to the conversation. The apps allow you to create polls with your contacts and friends, to send GIFs in the discussions, or even share music with Spotify.
Finally, you can also do useful stuff with Facebook Messenger, such as sending money to your friends by adding a card and select Payment. Also, the app is using the ride-sharing companies, so ordering an Uber can be right from Messenger. And the last thing you can do with the app is to order services through it, such as flower or pizza, or even subscribe to news channels for daily news.
