How To Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger has taken the world by storm since the day it was launched and has never looked back. But questions like How To Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger have always been lurking around our northern hemisphere!

Facebook Messenger allows us to be active and interact with our friends anytime, anywhere. But well there are  ways to appear offline to some people on Facebook as well which I'll be discussing over here.

So without squeezing a lot of your valuable time, let's get down to what you came here for (after a brief introduction and insight into Facebook messenger first, ofcourse!)

Why to Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger?

Before answering your question How To Appear Invisible (Offline) on Facebook Chat, why shouldn't we have a look at “why” to do so? That only seems fair, right?

Now there are a number of reasons why you might want to hide your “online” status from your friends and family.

  • If you're a student, you clearly don't want your parents or relatives yelling at you about wasting your time.
  • If you aren't in a mood to entertain chat messages.

Now the question arises, what does “appearing offline” mean? There are quite a bit of disillusion surrounding the topic so let me clear some of them.

  • Appearing Offline doesn't mean you won't receive any messages. You still will.
  • You also will be notified of every incoming message.
  • The only difference it will make is, you won't have that “green light” which indicates your online status for your friends.

How To Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger

So finally down to the section you've been waiting for. Here's how to appear offline on Facebook Messenger.

How to go offline on Facebook Messenger? Method #1 on Android Devices:

Other Facebook Tricks Worth Mentioning:-

Many of you might not know but there are quite a lot “fun” elements Facebook added just last week, can't let it pass without mentioning them, right?

1:- New Masks and Layovers

There's an adaptive and interactive Masks and layovers feature included recently to the messenger app.

You can choose from nearly a 100 different masks and themes and layovers for your images. What I meant by “adaptive” earlier is, some of those masks have this self-adjusting feature.

So they automatically sense your body parts, in the likes of eyes, nose, lips etc and position themselves where they ought to be.

While those which aren't adaptive, can be increased or decreased in the size, as well as be rotated.

Open the app > Go to the chat box of the person you want to send the picture to, and tap on the camera button.

How To Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger

Now turn on the front facing camera and a lot of themes, layovers and icons would come up.

Choose any mood or mask from the screen and tap on it. It would take you back to your camera with the theme applied, so all you've to do is, adjust your face and snap the picture!

2:- Secret Conversations:-

Honestly, I know not how “secret” these conversations are cause I refuse to believe a billion dollar organization like Facebook would ever provide you with full anonymity.

But anyway, just open up the chatbox of the friend you want to talk secretly with, and tap on the “info” button on the top-left corner.

How To Appear Offline on Facebook Messenger

After that, just select “secret conversation” from the list.

A new popup box would come up where you can send your text!

And it doesn't end there! If you click on the “timer” icon, you even get to select the duration for which you want to keep the message in the receiver's folder before them being deleted.

And well, another one of the “secret” features is that, the message which you sent automatically gets completely blurred after 3 seconds of you sending it.

So even if someone gets access to your device, they won't be able to squeeze out the meaning of those messages no matter what!

Everyone out there has a Facebook account these days, you might be devoid of Birth certificate, Ration card, but you have a Facebook account, and that's for sure, even if you might not explore or use all of its features at the moment.

For eg. have you ever wondered, or Googled,  How to Use Facebook Video Chat?

Probably yes, or probably no, either because you didn't have time to dive deep into the network and check out its awesomeness, or it seemed just too complicated for you.

Well, it's not. That's what I'm simplifying in this article right here, how to use Facebook video chat!

What is Facebook Video Calling?

Facebook video calling is just like any other video calling service, take either Skype or Google+ hangout, but just probably better. Well, more or less they all do the same job, but let's have a better insight into what it exactly is.

Facebook Video calling is probably one of the easiest ways to talk to your loved ones, face to face, even when you are physically miles apart, even if see them just on the pixels of a luminous screen, the warmth you receive is no less than talking to them directly in front of you.

But then again, you could just directly use Skype or any other tool, right? Why Facebook?

Well simply because Facebook is the world's best and most successful Social network.

It's easy and above all, you already have a Facebook account, which I know by means of your being here on this post, if you didn't have a Facebook account, you wouldn't have been reading this post, simple as that.

How to Turn on Video Calling on Facebook

Facebook isn't the world's most successful social media for nothing, it has an extremely easy user interface that lets you do almost anything on social media with extreme ease.

So of course, the same goes for turning on Facebook video calling, in fact, you don't need to specifically turn video chats on, if you're online on Facebook, people can call you on video without any external option or plugin.

So, I guess the problem here is not how to turn it on, but how to turn the Facebook chat on, right? So that you can have video calls without any problem, and that's exactly what I'm going to discuss!

How to Turn Facebook Chat on For Video Calling:-

You have to keep in mind, that you need to perform this step only if your Chat is turned off. Or else, you can directly proceed to the next step.

So, considering your Chat is turned off, it should show something like this in your chatbox.

If you're getting the image as above, then you're also getting the turn on the chat button, right?

Well, it's meant to be clicked, so go out and take a leap of faith and click it. ( No, of course, it's not as dangerous as I'm making it sound, what it does is it just takes your chat status from being offline to online . )

So well that's about it, now your Facebook chat is turned on, and you're available for Video calling, also for making calls from your end, so let's work around making Facebook video calls now.

How to use Facebook Video Chat

Ever used Skype or Google hangout? Well no, it's simpler compared to them.

Click on the friend you want to chat with.

Upon clicking, this chatbox should pop up, where you can see all your previous and recent messages. You should also see a pretty neat “Video” icon on the top.

Click this button, and it will pop up the video chatbox.

After a couple of seconds of “ringing”, the other person should hopefully pick the call up, and you can enjoy your Facebook video call without any issues. Not just the call, Facebook has pretty advanced options to let you control the call quality and everything else.

How to use Facebook Video Chat Settings Options:-

It's no use me telling you to start a video chat, without telling you about the settings, right? I mean Comm'n, Facebook spends millions of dollars on this single feature, so why leave a million dollar option out, huh?

And no it's not very complicated or messy, it just lets you test and verifies the working of your Mic and speakers correctly, so not a lot of rocket science over there.

Okay so when you're on a call, you probably can see the settings icon at the bottom, which should look something like this.

The first option that comes up is of the Camera. Make sure your primary camera or the camera you want to use is selected.

While the second option is that of Audio device, which lets you select the device by which you want to input your voice for the receiver, well you can either use your laptop's inbuilt mic, or an external one, normally it is configured by itself, but if it's not, just select it on this section button.

Oh, it doesn't end there, in case you have some member of your office come up to your room suddenly, you can also mute your mic, by clicking on the already illustrative enough icon on the panel.

It even allows you temporarily ( or permanently, depends on how you use it) to disable your video! So that the call will feel like only a voice call. Well if you're running low on bandwidth, or aren't in your best shape, then this button can come in handy.

Ah, are you among those who prefer to utilize every pixel of their screen? In that case, just a chat window won't be enough for you, and this button down there, allows you to expand the call to a full-screen mode! See? No pixels wasted!

Once you are done, click on the Red End Button at the bottom of the screen to end the conversation.

So well, that was about it. Next time a tiny little doubt pops up in your head, asking you how to use Facebook video chat, you know where to look, right?

I hope I made things simple for you if not, there's the comment-box down here, and there's your keyboard on your side, make use of both of them, I like hearing from you guys.
