How to Mute Chat on Facebook Messenger

Written by Thirumalraj

In this post, you’ll see how to mute conversations on Facebook and Messenger.

I use the app (Android and iPhone), Messenger.com, Messenger Desktop, and FB. Let’s begin.

Mute Chat on Facebook and Messenger.com

Here are the steps:

Sign in to Facebook and hit “Messenger” in the left sidebar, or Sign in to Messenger.com.

Hover your mouse over the chat that you want to mute.

Click on the three horizontal dots.

Click on the “Mute notifications” option.

You can now see these options:

  • Mute message notifications – only message notifications of this chat are muted.
  • Call notifications – only call notifications of this chat are muted.
  • Mute message and call notifications – both this chat’s message and call notifications are muted.

Pick the one you like and click the Next button.

You can choose the duration you prefer. The app automatically unmutes the conversation once the selected period expires.

If you wish to silence the chat until you unmute it, select “Until I turn it back on.”

Click on the “Mute” button.

To unmute, follow the steps above. Hit the “Unmute notifications” option.

Alternatively, you can use the following method to mute (works for both Facebook and Messenger.com):

Click on the chat you want to mute.

In the right sidebar, click Privacy & support.

To mute a conversation, click Mute notifications above “Ignore messages.”

The rest are the same as above.

Note: For unmuting, follow the steps above, and you’ll see the Unmute notifications. Hit it.

Mute Conversation on Messenger Desktop

Open the Messenger Desktop app and right-click on the chat.

Hit Mute notifications.

You can choose the duration you prefer. The app automatically unmutes the conversation once the selected period expires.

If you wish to silence the chat until you unmute it, select “Until I turn it back on.”

Click on the “Confirm” button.

Note: For unmuting, right-click on the muted chat and hit Unmute notifications.

Select the one you want and tap OK.

You can choose the duration you prefer. The available ones are For 15 minutes, For 1 hour, For 8 hours, For 24 hours, and Until I change it.

After the selected time expires, the conversation will automatically be unmuted.
