Messenger Notification But No Message?

There are a few reasons why you might be getting notifications from Messenger without there being a new message. Here are a few things you can try
  • Make sure you are logged into the correct account
  • If you have multiple accounts on the Messenger app, make sure you are logged into the correct one.

  • Check for updates
  • Make sure you have the latest version of the Messenger app installed on your device. You can check for updates by going to the app store or play store and looking for updates for the Messenger app.

If none of these steps help, you may want to reach out to Facebook support for further assistance. You can do this by going to the help center on the Facebook website and searching for a solution to your issue. If you are unable to find a solution, you can also try contacting Facebook directly through the “Report a Problem” feature in the app or on the website.

Why Does Messenger Say Unread Messages?

On the Facebook Messenger app, when you receive a new message, it will show up as “unread” until you open the conversation thread and read the message. Once you have read the message, it will no longer be marked as “unread.”

If you see a notification saying that you have unread messages on the Messenger app, it means that you have received one or more new messages that you have not yet opened and read. You can access these messages by opening the Messenger app and going to the conversation thread where the message was sent.

If you are not seeing the unread messages notification even though you know you have received new messages, it is possible that the notification settings for the Messenger app are not correctly configured. You can check the notification settings for the app by going to the settings menu on your device and looking for the options related to notifications. You can also check the notification settings within the Messenger app itself by going to the app’s settings menu.
