Popular chat apps like Messenger allow us to communicate with friends and family across iOS and Android phones alike. However, that interconnectivity doesn't mean both apps are the same. While Facebook has made strides to close gaps between these two platforms, chat heads remain an exclusive feature for Android devices, and they let you keep Messenger threads close by.
Chat heads are circular profile icons that overlay other content on the screen when you receive a new message on Messenger. Tap on one, and you can read the full conversation in a pop-up, as well as respond, without leaving any app you're currently in. They remain available even after sending a reply, so you can quickly return to the chat without having to open Messenger. You can dismiss chat heads whenever you want, but they will return when you receive a new message.
Chat heads weren't always an Android-only feature. When first unveiled, Facebook offered chat heads on iOS, but with a caveat. While chat heads work system-wide on Android, an iPhone user had to stay in the Facebook app for them to appear. This was likely due to restrictions from Apple, and in-app chat heads made no sense inside Messenger where all chats ended up. With those two thoughts in mind, we're unlikely to see chat heads make their way back to iOS anytime soon.
Enabling or disabling chat heads is simple on Android. First, tap the profile icon in the top left to open the Settings menu. Next, locate \"Chat Heads,\" then tap the slider to either enable or disable the feature. If you have any chat heads currently open, they will disappear if you disable the option here.
If you enabled them, when chat heads appear as overlays on your screen, tap on them to open up the overlay window with your conversation, where you can reply. When multiple chats happen, they are bundled on the same overlay icon, so tap that to choose which one you want to view. Anything else is fair game in this window, so you can add media and attachments to messages, change chat settings, make a call, view all of your chats, start a brand new chat, add to your story, and so on.
You can dismiss chat heads on the screen at any time by dragging the profile icon to the bottom of the display. Drag it over the (x) that appears on-screen and let go, and your chat heads will disappear. At least until you receive a new notification.

The whole Facebook customer chat is loaded over iframe, so it seems there is not much to do there, I've tried placing my own icon on top of it and use \"pointer-events: none;\" so the original Facebook icon would be clicked, but the problem is that my icon has transparent parts and you can see the original icon underneath.

Sometimes it's just easier to say something rather than typing it up. To send a voice message, simply tap and hold the microphone to the left of the text field on your chat. Once you start a message, it'll send when you stop holding the microphone, but you can drag it away to delete it. Anyway, say what you're too lazy to type, and then lift your finger to automatically send to the chat.

This works with whatever emoji you have selected for the chat.
