Here’s a list of 5 Facebook chat extensions for Chrome which will allow you to integrate Facebook chat better into Chrome. Facebook takes way too much time from us. When you need to take a break from the news feed, games and photo albums, but would also like to stay in the loop about important chat messages, then the following Chrome extensions are for you. They will help you receive notifications, exchange messages and more without leaving Chrome.
Let’s look at them below.
Facebook Chat Pro
Facebook Chat Pro is a Facebook chat notifier, which will allow you to move away from the Facebook tab, and receive notifications about new messages in Facebook chat using the built-in Chrome notifications.
Notifications are going to pop-up in the bottom right corner of the screen. They show the name of the contact and also preview of the message. With Facebook chat Pro, you won’t have to pay attention to the Facebook tab, and can even leave Chrome, while still receiving notifications.
Get Facebook Chat Pro.
Pretty Facebook Chat
Pretty Facebook Chat will let you manipulate Facebook chat appearance. It can be used to completely change the chat window theme from the default one to one of the half a dozen of others that come bundled with this Facebook chat extension.
I’m using Christmas theme on the image above. Color of the text can be changed, and it’s also possible to resize the chat window and reposition it away from the bottom of the screen.

Facebook Chat Pop-Outs
Facebook Chat Pop-Outs will really come in handy if you want to chat on Facebook, without having Facebook open, so that it doesn’t tempt you into browsing the news feed.
This Facebook chat extension adds a top right corner button to the standard Facebook chat window. Clicking on that button will pop-out the chat window from within Chrome into it’s own window, see image above. You won’t have to have Facebook open at all, but you can still enjoy in a chat session with your friends..
Facebook Chat Only
I mentioned in the introduction that I’m focusing on Facebook chat, and on helping you avoid being distracted by the ever alluring chat background into browsing Facebook more.
Facebook Chat Only will mute the background, so to speak, and allow you to only focus the chat window. Just tap on the top right corner icon and the entire Facebook, except the top strip is going to be veiled in a purple curtain, leaving you only with the chat window. You can see the extension in action on the image above.

Best thing that you can do in order to use Facebook chat is to use Facebook Chat Pop-Outs. It’s the best choice out of the four Facebook chat extensions that I covered above. It completely isolates Facebook chat from Chrome, there’s no need to have Facebook open in a tab at all. It’s a Facebook Messenger client for Chrome basically. Use Facebook Chat Pro for notifications and you’re covered when it comes to Facebook chatting in Chrome, distraction free Facebook chatting at that.
