Make Notifications For Facebook Messenger on iPhone For Some Hours or All Time

Facebook Messenger application specially designed for the users to chat over it has been improving over couple of months in the past. Now they have the provision to send the voice recording to the other users but the only problem I feel in this feature is that the recording will only take place till you place your finger over the recording button, but still the feature is there and I hope that this restriction of keeping your finger over the recording button while recording is to make the recording short (which is easy to send and receive). Now when the features are improving, the users have been using it in preference to the other IM applications because as the phrase goes ‘everyone is on Facebook.’

But what to do not want to block a certain friend of yours but he keep on bugging you through the day on your Facebook messenger. You will definitely to switch off the notification with respect to that particular user rather than muting the whole application. In post we will tell you the method by which you will be able to mute a particular chat for a fixed period of time or if you want than you will be able to mute the whole application which can be required when you are busy in a meeting. Before proceeding further let me tell you that the notification will be muted for a particular period of time and after you will start receiving the notification again.

Steps Performed To Mute Facebook iPhone Chat Message

Open the messenger application and then open the chat, now tap the icon on the right hand side top corner.


Now tap the notification field and then you will see the options for muting that particular user.

If you wish to mute that particular user forever then the first option is very much appropriate or for the fixed period of time, the other 2 options are good to go.


But if you want to mute the application for 8 hours then come to the home page of the application and then tap the highlighted option, which will show you the list of users available online.

Now tap the gear icon and then toggle the status of the notification field.

Here you will have only one option, which is muting the notification for 8 hours.


That’s all the options you have to mute the application and once that fixed span of time is over you will be able to receive the notifications and if mean while you opened the application, then on the very first screen you will be notified the way mentioned below.


We have mentioned the way to mute the application, but that involves lot of time and moreover you will never want to mute the application permanently. So take these steps as the best way to mute the chat for a certain period of time. If you have Facebook application installed on your iPhone then you must also be getting notified by that application if anyone pings you over the chat, I am not sure if muting the messenger the application mutes the notification on Facebook application too.
