    Default Get Bubbleheads for Facebook messenger?

    Ok prolly the ONLY thing I sort of miss about android is the little chat head bubbles for Facebook messenger. That was really cool.

    Is there a way to enable that? Or will it ever come to iOS ?

    I don't know if there's a jailbreak for it, but I wouldn't hold my breath that Apple will allow it.

    They had them for a while, but discontinued them.

    There was a jailbreak tweak for it called "Chat Heads". Other than that there is no stock option for this function

    You don't want the bubble heads. They are annoying. I usually disable it on my Android phone. The chat head usually gets in the way when you are using the phone. It's not worth it

    I prefer chat heads especially in a long conversation while working on something else. The transition is smoother and quicker

    Well, you can always mute the bubbles for say an hour or so. I really really like them, since I don't have to stop using my apps while using it.

    Facebook tried it out for a short time with the "Facebook" app for iOS back when "Chat Heads" was new in 2013, but ditched it for the Facebook "Messages" app, which is more integrated with iOS. The Chat Heads thing only worked in the "Facebook" app and was intrusive, in my opinion, on the real estate of your screen.

    You can still use the Chat Heads feature in the Paper app made by Facebook. Just search Facebook Paper. That's the closest you're going to get.
