He let me know that the offending message that was triggering the mobile badge icon glitch had actually been archived by Facebook so it wasn’t visible in his main view of Messenger.To find messages in your archive, click the Gear icon in the upper-left corner and choose “Archived Threads”.Admins also have the ability to remove members if needed, and promote or demote any other person in the group chat as an admin.The great thing about admin privileges in Messenger is they work in the background; if your group chat doesn’t need that level of control, it won’t get in the way of your group messaging.When you click on the Messenger icon, it sends you over to the Messenger app, but….there’s no unread message. Even though the Facebook Messenger app doesn’t show you a new or unread message, you probably have one. Each time this happens, the mobile app doesn’t display any new messages, but when I switch to the desktop site, I do see one.So, to clear the Facebook Messenger notification: Other Facebook users can send you Messenger requests to connect and when you do connect, Facebook will send you a confirmation message that your accounts have been connected and you can send messages to each other.This is one of those strange little glitches that keeps popping up in the Facebook mobile app. Sooo…for both your sanity and mine, I thought I would write a quick blog post reminding myself how to fix it and, hopefully, helping all those Google searchers out there who are looking for: If ANY of these sound like you…on, here’s how to fix it.
Today we’re excited to start rolling out new, widely-requested Messenger features that make your group chat experience more robust and seamless by giving you more control – whether you’re planning a weekend trip with friends, chatting about a new episode of your favorite show with likeminded fans, or catching up with your family.
I have found that the most common unread messages are these types of messages.
When you review your messages, be sure to pay careful attention to those and mark them as read.
You’ll have the option to decide if you’d like admin approval for approving new members, but this preference is off by default in your group chat settings.
Admin privileges in Workplace Chat are also rolling out today, learn more here.We’re also making it easier to add new people to group chats with joinable links.
