Seems people aren’t installing the Facebook Messenger that I’ve talk about even Darth Vader wouldn’t use the App right now! So I’ve used the Facebook App to send and receive messages off Facebook but I haven’t been using the Messenger app. Let’s make that clear, I still am able to get messages on my App:
I am sure you are wondering just how I did it. This post is to to help you understand how you can do just that! I believe Facebook is keeping the messages as a legacy for older Android system(s). It can be access simply by installing the messenger and removing all permissions on the app. I think there is a flag in the Facebook App that turns on the extra chat menu because Facebook doesn’t want you to leave their Application just to message a friend on Facebook. So this way it is there to keep you on Facebook when you’re doing Facebook things.
In order to do this hack you will need to download two different programs for each device your want this to work on! First off this is a hack and no real programming skills are needed to do this. You just need install these two apps from the Google Play Store:
After you download both Applications Open up the APM (Advanced Permission Manager) and go to ALL APPS:
Search for the Facebook Messenger Application. Once you found it will look something like this:
Go Turn every check mark into an (X) by just tapping the check mark. Once you go through and change all permissions. You then will see something like this:
Hit “Save and Re-Install“. It will say it is “Working Hard“. It will then show you this:
So you now have to Un-Install the Messenger App and reinstall the new APP. You will need to allow Third Party installs on your phone. Once you installed the new permission free app, you will need to reboot your phone or device and load up Facebook. You should see your message menu re-appear. As long as you keep the messenger app on the device that extra menu should stay available from now on. I do not know how long they will allow this but it works just fine for me. You will see “MESSENGER has stopped responding and closed” When you receive new messages but I find that less of an annoyance than them having getting even more information from me!
