The good news is you can turn off Facebook Messenger notifications permanently on the iPhone, which most iOS users will likely know thanks to the notification center found under the settings menu and allowing you to simply turn off any app you desire.


Things work a little different for Android users. You’ll still need to visit the main settings menu, but from there you go to the apps menu and choose Messenger. It’s pretty obvious what to do here, just make sure “show notifications” is unchecked and this will disable push notifications. After this, pop into the Messenger app and visit the in-app settings menu and turn off Chat Heads from within the Notifications/Chat Heads tab.

Let us know if you chose to disable Facebook Messenger notifications, and also what you think about using the separate app? We’ve also heard about some people experiencing battery drain with the dedicated chat app, so again we’d love to hear if you have such issues as well.
