If we use Facebook Messenger regularly, we may get lots of notifications. This situation, throughout the day, can end up being a drawback. Messenger notifications can be easily disabled. Here are two ways to do it.
How to disable notifications for a particular chat on Facebook Messenger
The flood of notifications may only come from one particular contact. To silence it, follow these steps. Open Messenger and make a long tap on the chat you want to mute.
In the drop-down menu that will appear, tap on Mute notifications.Mute the chat in Messenger
