It sometimes happens that in a group chat, some people share similar names. In this case, you must define a unique nickname for each participant. You can do this by clicking on the group member list above your chat.
After tapping on it, click on the “nicknames” and select the person who will receive a new nickname. Then enter the nickname of your choice and save it.
Unlimited Emoji Reactions
Previously, Facebook only allowed us to react using specific emojis. Now you can do the same but with hundreds of emoticons to choose from.
To start reacting to emoji, tap and hold the message for a while. Click the “+” icon and find the emoji you want to react to. The first set of emojis are also customizable.
Facebook Messenger allows you to connect with friends by sharing your current location with them. While it may seem odd at first, you can give a helping hand to a friend who is stuck or in trouble at the time.
To demonstrate this, click on the “+” icon. Tap the arrow icon. You can now share your location live with your friends and others.
Group discussion photo
The messaging app will also allow users to designate a picture for their group. Before editing the photo, click on the list at the top of the group chat. Then you can now edit and select the image in your Camera Roll.
If you want a warning for your friend who can’t respond right away, you can try creating a poll from Facebook Messenger. To do this, tap the “+” icon next to the text field.
Then click on the three bar icon and fill in the specific information. You can add options if you want.
