The new Facebook 6.0 for the iOS has brought a total new look to the way we used Facebook on iPhone or iPad. Most of the updates have been adopted from the recent Facebook Home interface that was launched specially for Android Platforms, where Facebook chat heads and the chat stickers were first introduced. However many folks don’t know how to use these features as Facebook could not implement this new feature as integrated in the Android System. The iOS system doesn’t allow such integration of any app with it’s system files.
But the Jailbreak community comes up with the solution to add/enable these Facebook Chat heads features system wide in iOS. The developers are working at a jailbreak tweak named as Message Box which will enable to integrate the floating Chat heads with the system files of your iPhone or iPad.
The Message Box can be found at Cydia, developed by Adam Bell and is available under BigBossRepo. In order to make your Chat heads visible or keep them always in front no matter which app are you using, you have to install this tweak named Message Box.
The installation is easy and quick just follow these steps.
How to Enable Facebook Chat Heads.
- First of all you must have latest Facebook app installed on your iOS device.
- Open Cydia on your iOS device search for Message Box and install this tweak.
- After Installation Restart the SpringBoard and here you go..
This tweak comes up with a lot of setting options where you can configure the app as you want it to be. There are features like manual chat refresh timer which is also configurable in settings, also the amount of Chat heads you want to pop up in a session. You can even select the place where you want your Chat Head to appear whenever you receive a message from Facebook.
To experiment your first encounter with the Chat Heads. Open Facebook app and initiate chat with any of your Facebook contact, we suggest choose a responsive one not a lazy mate. When you will start chatting a Chat Head will pop up over your Facebook Messenger app. Now you can close your Facebook app but this chat Head will remain live on screen and you can carry on chatting with your mate even on home screen while visiting any other app on your iPhone or iPad. So when you are done you can simply drag this Chat Head to the bottom of the screen and it will vanish .
