it has bug, when the device is on landscape mode and the chat head is in the right corner and when you open the chat head, the dialog box is not appearing. but when the heat head is in the left corner it is working properly.

Yes it works on any ROM. I'm using it on MIUI.
Please make sure you enabled it from Xposed Manager.
If you are using LSPosed, then disable and enable the module AGAIN from LSPossed Manager. And then force close Messenger.
I reenabled it at redisabled, then cleared the data of Messenger, still doesn't change. I don't know what's the culprit, but I'll try again later. This is a very nifty feature so I really need it. Anyways, thank you so much for making such a wonderful app. I'll report back to you once I make it work in my MIUI12.5 EEA. Thank you.

Good to know.
You can update official Messenger from Playstore any time, it will work on any Messenger version (assuming they don't mess up more).
Yes. We can update the app without losing the module feature. Omg you really are a life saver. Again, thank you so much! I'll report back to you if something noticeable or something negative occurs in the module.

It's not working on the latest Xiaomi.eu weekly build (A11, Miui 12.5). Tried the turn on/off method, multiple force closes of the messenger app, deleting all data, etc. The phone's app list says it's never used. I was able to use it on a LOS 18.1 rom with Riru and LSPosed. Tried to install edXposed from the Magisk repo but it's ask for Riru and redirects me to a download page. Riru is on my phone. Any suggestion? I even tried to remove LSPosed, but edXposed still asks for Riru....

    Yea if it stops working always try a downgrade first but it your logs look like lsposed is having some hooking issues no big deal but that could also cause your issue a glitchy riru was my first issue but fixed after swapping ROMs some are great some not but I know neon does his absolute best at keeping up to date but I can't speak for him he would know more looking in to your logs

    # Notice #

    Facebook is updating their source code to target newer android version and changing a lot stuff. They are bringing many new bugs in recent updates. Read comments on PlayStore, a lot of people complaining about countless issues.

    This module doesn't use any messy workaround, it enables chat head pure natively. So, whatever bugs appear in chat head, it's all coming from original messenger. Those bugs exist on Android 10 too.

    Few known bugs that are not related to this module, these bugs are happening to everyone (even on Android 10):
    Bug #1. Camera and Voice recording isn't working in chat head sometimes. This bug started from messenger version 330.X.X. They fixed the camera issue on v333.X.X (not fully though), but recording issue is still there. So they might fix it soon. You can use messenger version 329.X.X until then.
    Bug #2. Sometimes chat head not appearing itself when there's a new message. This is also original messenger problem. I hope they will fix it soon.

    Looks like they will bring more bugs soon.
    If there are any serious bugs that only exist on Android 11, I'll try to fix those.
    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. Let me know whenever new bugs appear.
