- 8It may take a moment to open up because I don't have the fastest internet connection in the world - but it is the second fastest.What we are going to do now is to look for the Facebook Messenger app. You could search through all this and get a cool app like this Star Wars thing here, but we are going to skip past that and get on to the point of this article that is the Facebook Messenger.
- 14Tapping will take you to the actual application and let you see more about it.Now, we are on Facebook Messenger. We get the full details of the Facebook Messenger application: who made it (it's Facebook); social networking; recently updated on the April 10th. Apparently, a lot of people are not happy with the update.
- 15Let's tap on "Reviews" and see what it is - quite a few 1-star ratings:"some messages that are not delivered then", "useless", "poor", "bruh, keep dropping my calls", "stupid idea". People are not happy with the latest Facebook messenger. However, I have no choice. I have to install just to show you how awesome, or not awesome, and it is.
- 18Look at that, the Facebook Messenger has been installed.We can on Open from here, or we can go back to Home screen and tap on the icon to open it. Since you will most likely be opening the Facebook Messenger application, on your iPhone 6, from the Home screen, I'm going to tap Open here on the iPhone store which will open the Facebook Messenger on my iPhone 6. Tap once and it will open the Facebook Messenger.
- 20Now, it is going to ask me if the phone number is up-to-date.That's my phone number folks - you can call me, message me, pester me, disturb me - I will completely ignore you though. If you ask me anything about work related, that's where our comments and question is for and you are welcome to message me there but on the phone, not so much.
- 31You can go to Settings.Tap on Settings and you can change the settings. You could turn your notifications on or off, get notification previews, sounds, download videos, synced contacts, invite friends. There are a host of things that you can do here which is one of the actual nice things about the Messenger. For those of you who were not aware of Messenger, it was actually not developed by Facebook. It was created by a third-party and Facebook purchased it instead of being a stand-alone application.
- 32Let's give a quick press to the round button at the bottom of our phone - this is the Home button as we discussed previously.Now, we can give it another press which will take us back to our Home screen. You see, it took me back to the screen where Messenger is installed but that's my second screen.
- 35I'll press this round Home button at the bottom again will take me back to my Home screen.This concludes our tutorial on how to install and setup Facebook Messenger on your iPhone 6. Thank you for choosing VisiHow. Have a great day and we look forward to seeing you in our other videos.Advertisement
