When Facebook messenger got a major update, Chat heads were one of the interesting features introduced in the application. It allows you to chat and receive notifications even when you are using a different application. It will display the concerned person’s profile picture and the preview of the message in the random area of the screen. The chat heads can be moved anywhere on the screen and long press to close the conversation. Chat heads option is available only for mobile devices, there is no default option available for PC or web. So, today I’ve come with a new Chrome extension called “Faces.im“, which enables Facebook Chat heads on your browser. Here’s how it works.
The application is pretty simple and easy to install on your browser. You can download the extension using the link at the end of this post. As soon as, you complete the installation, you will see the “Faces” icon near to your URL bar. All you have to do is, just log in to your Facebook account and chat heads will be automatically enabled for the incoming messages. This extension will also let you access the “Personal Messages” section without opening your Facebook account. Click the “Faces” in your browser, to access your Personal Messages Window.
Chat heads will look similar to the ones in the Facebook messenger app. As soon as you receive a new message, the Chat head will pop up in a circle with the profile picture of that particular person. When you hover over the circle, you will get an “x” mark to close the chat and you can click that to open the conversation. Also, you will see a preview of the message you’ve received. To temporarily disable the Chat bubbles, click the “Faces” icon and go to “Personal Messages” window. In the top right corner, you can see “Chat Bubbles” option with “on/off” button to enable and disable it.
Faces is a pretty useful application for people who want to keep in touch with their Facebook Chat all the time. Also, the quick enable/disable option will let you focus on your work.
