Android bubbles on Messenger
Change platform:Computer Help
Bubbles let you read and reply to messages while you're using other apps.
A bubble (a circle with your friend's picture) will pop up when you get a new message. To view and reply to the message without leaving the screen you're on, just tap the bubble.
You can use your finger to move chat heads around on your screen or drag them to the bottom of the screen to close them when you're done chatting.
If bubbles aren't appearing on your Android, you'll need to turn them on.
To turn on bubbles in Android Marshmallow:
- From Chats, tap your profile picture in the top left.
- Scroll down and tap Bubbles.
- Tap All conversations can bubble or Selected conversations can bubble. To turn off this feature, select Nothing can bubble.
