How to Mark as Unread on Facebook Messenger

Written by Thirumalraj

Like WhatsApp and Telegram, Facebook and FB Messenger also have the option to mark chats as read and unread.

When you mark a conversation as read, it’ll mark all the messages in the chat as read and let the sender know that their messages are read.

When you mark a conversation as unread, it’ll not affect the sender side in any way. But it’ll mark the last message as unread for you, which is a remainder.

You can also see a Blue dot in the case of the iPhone, FB, Messenger.com, and Messenger Desktop app. This option is mainly for going back to a chat later.

Let’s see how. The below steps apply to the profile and group chat.

I use FB, Messenger app (Android and iPhone), Messenger.com, and Messenger Desktop app.

iPhone

If you’re using iPhone, follow the below steps:

Open the Messenger app and press your preferred conversation in the Chats tab.

You can see these options:

  • “Mark as Read” – You can view this if the conversation is marked as unread or has any unread message.
  • Mute
  • Archive
  • Delete

If you want to mark it as unread, choose Mark as Unread option.

Select the “Mark as Read” option to mark it as read.

That’s all.

Here’s an alternate method: Slide the conversation to the left. Select More and hit “Mark as unread” or “Mark as read.”

That’s it.
