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....
