In this tutorial, I will explain how to get Facebook like chat heads for WhatsApp on Android. If you are a Facebook user who loves the chat on Facebook via official Facebook Messenger App, then I assume that you are well aware of Facebook chat heads.
For those who are unaware, Facebook chat heads are the pop-up like balls which lets you have a chat and reply to messages from anywhere and any app. It means you don’t have to open Facebook Messenger app again and again to reply for each message.
After following this tutorial, you will be able to get somewhat similar chat heads for WhatsApp chats. These chat heads let you read messages even from lock screen. I will use an Android app called Dashdow to accomplish this.
Note: This app doesn’t let you reply from within the chat heads, instead it opens WhatsApp for you to reply.
Steps to Get Facebook Like Chat Heads for WhatsApp on Android:
Install and launch Dashdow WhatsApp app on your Android smartphone. You can get the app by clicking on the link given at end of this tutorial. For first time launch of the app, you will find the Notificationaccess option to be disabled. You have to enable it for using the app and get Facebook like chat heads for WhatsApp.
After enabling this option, you can customize app by enabling/disabling options: Auto Open Popup, Lockscreen, and WhatsApp Open.
