Facebook has emerged as the ultimate giant among social networks. Although there are other networks that try to compete, like Twitter, they don't surprise that it is not used in the same way. This is because Facebook was able to incorporate all the positive aspects of social networks into its interface.

Su Facebook you can upload all kinds of multimedia content, interact with others' content, enter statuses and even do live broadcasts. And the acquisition of Instagram and WhatsApp only made this giant bigger.



Among all these positive aspects of Facebook, is its private chat, which comes in the form of Facebook Messenger, an instant messaging service that you can use as a mobile application without having the Facebook application. It is quite easy to use and talk to others.

But it is normal that we may want to close the application when we have had enough. If this is the case for you, see below how you can close the Messenger application.

Closing the Messenger application

When we talk about closing the Messenger app, we mean making it stop running in the background. When we do this, we save a lot of ROM and RAM that we can use through the application.

Because, although it is true that the application will in any case be aware of sending you notifications or taking delivery notes chat ! whenever they text you, you can close the background task whenever you need it via Force Stop. See how you can do it:

  1. First, go to your device settings.
  2. Then, go to the general settings and find the section Applications.
  3. Here, look for the Messenger application or, if you need it, any other application you want to do the same with.
  4. Once found, select it and you will see the button " Come on stop " on the screen.
  5. Select it. And voila, this will prevent it from running in the background.

When you are done, you can stop worrying about the app, but be aware that the app may stop working properly. But on the other hand, you always can deactivate le notifications of the app if that's what's bothering you.



Disabling Messenger notifications

For many, the chat bubbles appearing on the screen while you are doing something else can be a bit annoying. In fact, if you are in multiple groups or have many people writing at the same time and you want some peace of mind, you can always turn off the application's notifications. This can always be done via the notification settings in the Settings options on your device.


But you also have the option of disable notifications in a personalized way. You just have to enter the application and select its menu. Here you will see among the list of options that you can disable and enable chat bubbles.


However, you can also access the section Notifications and customize the level of silence you need to be calm. You can disable all options or you can use the first option to mute the sound, which allows you to silence the application for up to 24 hours at a time.
