Disable Facebook Sounds on Samsung Galaxy S5
Edited by Hotelier, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. We will show you how to turn on and off notifications and sounds for Facebook Messenger on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini.
We'll begin by opening Messenger. If we don't have the icon on our home screen, we can access it through our applications "Apps" menu.
For now, let's tap the blue chat bubble "Messenger" icon. Tapping this icon will open the Messenger application.
Once we've opened Messenger, we need to access the settings menu. We can do that by tapping the little grey gear-shaped icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. We can see in this list below the name that the top option is "Notifications & Sounds".
Let's tap "Notifications & Sounds" one time.
If we want to turn all of the sounds off, we tap on the "ON" toggle. This blue toggle is located next to "Notifications & Sounds" at the top of the screen.
We select the duration for muting notifications. For this tutorial, we tap "For 15 Minutes". In this video, there will be "Off until 13:34" written underneath "Notifications & Sounds". In addition, the toggle is grey and in the "OFF" position.
To turn notifications back on before the indicated time, we can simply tap on the toggle one time.
If we want to mute only some notifications and sounds, we can uncheck some of the boxes by tapping on the checkmarks.
If we want to reactivate some notifications and sounds, we can check the boxes by tapping on them.
When we've finished, we can close Messenger by tapping the bottom-center home button on the phone. This will take us back to the home screen.
This concludes the tutorial on how to turn on and off notifications & sounds for Facebook Messenger using the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini. If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave them in the space below.
