Hey guys, Are you an MIUI user? If yes, Do you use Chat Heads of Facebook Messenger??

Well, i am asking you this and writing this post because one of the friends (who is also an MIUI user) was not able to enable it on his MIUI Phone.

I helped him out but I came up with the thought that many other MIUI Users may also have this problem. So in this post, I'm going to show you guys "How to enable Chat Heads of Facebook Messenger App in MIUI Phones?"...

The Facebook Messenger "Chat Heads" looks like the screenshot below:

Are you one of them, who still didn't know about it? or aren't able to use it??
Don't worry, I'm here to help you...

Chat Heads will let you use Messenger in a more convenient way. You will be able to use it while using any other apps on your phone.

You will be able to read and reply messages without opening the Messenger app, from any app window/screen of your phone.

Okay, now you know enough about what the Chat Head is. So, without wasting any more time, Let me show you how to do this...

There are two ways to do this: 1) With the MIUI Official "Security" app and, 2) Going through the "Settings". I am going to tell you only one method below!

Method 1 (The Security App):

Step 1: First of Open "Security" App on your phone. (See the screenshots below, whenever you don't understand what I am saying).

Click on Security App - Screenshot

Step 2: After opening the Security app, Click on "Permissions"

Click on Permissions - Screenshot

Step 3: Now once you have to click on "Permissions"

Step 5: Now again scroll down to and find "Display pop-up window" and click on that to edit permissions of Messenger app.

Click on Display pop-up window - Screenshot

Step 6: Now click on "Accept" to allow Messenger to show Pop-up windows.

Click on Accept - Screenshot

Now if you have successfully enabled Pop-up windows for Messenger then you will see a green "Right Sign" next to Display pop-up window option (As shown on the Screenshot below)

Now I am sure that you won't have any problem to use Chat Heads on your phone, Make sure your Messenger app is enabled with Chat Heads, by default it should be enabled.

If not then go to your Messenger Profile page/window then scroll down and find Chat Heads and turn it ON by clicking on the button on the right side.

That's it. Now go multitask while using your messenger app together. Enjoy!
