Facebook Messages

Facebook messages are a great way to keep in touch with your friends, except for one thing. A few years ago, fb separated messages from the main facebook app on mobile. So if you’re on your phone and want to check a new fb message, you can’t—unless you also have facebook Messenger installed.

For most folks, that’s not an  issue. They’ve download Messanger app and love it. But for some folks this is a big problem because they have their storage problem on their device.

So, today we are here to give some alternatives by which you can check your facebook messages without having  messenger installed.

Follow the steps below to access your fb messages:-

  1. If you are an Android user, open the chrome browser on your device.
  2. Navigate to or .
  3. Open the context menu within Chrome and check the box next to “Request Desktop Site”.
  4. Reload the page and you should see the desktop site.
  5. Log in.
  6. Click the Messages link in the left nav under your profile photo to see your messages and respond to them.

This is not the best user experience , but it gets you to your messages without ever having to bow to the privacy will of facebook.

There is an another trick which you can try on your Android device or on iphone, see the steps below:-

  1. Go ahead and select “Install Messenger,” inside your App Store or Google Play.
  2. Begin downloading the app, but stop the download before it finishes installing.
  3. Now, when you go back to the main Facebook app, messages are once again displayed in the messages tab.

Of course, there’s a chance Facebook may update its apps to close this loophole, so the workaround may not be effective for long.  But for till then enjoy this trick or you can also use the first option.
