With Android 11 came the bubble functionality, which displaced the chat head mechanism in Messenger. Unfortunately bubbles are very buggy - for example on OnePlus phones they are responsible for freezing the whole phone.

That's why I've created a MOD for Messenger which brings back the old chat heads.

Install guide
  1. Uninstall all Facebook apps (Facebook, Messenger, Facebook Lite, Messenger Lite, Facebook Business Suite etc).
  2. Install the apps from this post (the ones you are using)
  3. Enjoy!
(If you use Facebook apps that are not attached to this post, let me know, I'll resign apks and add them)

--------------------------------------------
UPDATE 7.09
New versions:
- Messenger 329.0.0.10.118
- Facebook 336.0.0.0.85 alpha (I had troubles with decompiling standard/beta versions)
Download here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...s-for-android-11.4300779/page-4#post-85596939
Please give me feedback, if everything is all right I will replace files in this post.


UPDATE 27.07
New versions - facebook_330.0.0.0.102.apk and messenger_324.0.0.0.62.apk.
Fixed:
- connection Facebook <=> Messenger (sharing videos, opening Messenger from Facebook)
- (highly possible) Facebook not refreshing wall

Let me know if Facebook Lite or Business Manager is needed to be updated as well

There’s a new problem. Some emojis are not appearing in emoji panel on messenger app you provided here. It's happening since yesterday(16/09/21).
Any solution?

Hello, I wish you all the best. I am using Android 9. I think you have arranged the application to work on 10 and above. Could you please edit the name for 9 ..

I am uploading a video with a problem with the chat bubble. when the screen is horizontal, the balloon does not launch, no matter in which application. vertically works flawlessly. I don't see any other problems.

Can you go in landscape mode while the bubbles are open?
Landscape is problematic. I can't fix it myself. I think this is one of the reason why Facebook depracated Old Chat Heads and moved on to Bubble Notifications.
Some emojis are not appearing in emoji panel on messenger app you provided here. It's happening since yesterday....we need old emoji 🥺
Is it also happening in the official applications?
Hello, I wish you all the best. I am using Android 9. I think you have arranged the application to work on 10 and above. Could you please edit the name for 9 ..
This mod is dedicated for devices with Android 11+. Old Chat Heads should works by default on Android 9.
I found another problem. Messenger says I have a notification but everything is read.View attachment 5425115
Are you sure you read all your messages? :p

I thought this would save me from that Bubbles thingy, yeah Chat Heads is back in this modified apk, but I got disappointed whenever I go landscape mode, tapping the chat heads while in landscape mode will show you nothing...

I'm in Android 11, MIUI 12.5.0.1 Stable.

Hi I tried it. It works, but you need to delete FB and messages first and install the mod.
