How to turn off Facebook Messenger's notification sounds (Android)

Please note: this is a tutorial for inexperienced users.

With over 700 million monthly active users, Facebook Messenger is undoubtedly one of the top instant messaging apps out there. It's so widely used, that the specific sound of receiving a message (you definitely know it) is often heard on the streets, in parks, cafes, and so on. Of course, you can always turn off Messenger's notification sounds on your smartphone or tablet, and we're now going to show you how to do it.

How to turn off Facebook Messenger's notification sounds (Android)

The first obvious thing that you need to do is open the Messenger app. Once it's open, you can see a settings button in the upper right corner. Tapping on that opens the settings menu, from where you'll need to select the Notifications & Sounds tab. In the Notifications & Sounds sub-menu, you just need to deselect the Sound option, and you're done: you'll still receive notifications, but without any sound to bother you. You can also turn off vibration, and even turn off notifications completely - this way, however, you won't know you have new messages unless you manually check by opening the Messenger app (or keeping it open).

If you don't want to turn off Facebook Messenger's notification sounds, perhaps you'll want to know how to change them (in case you're bored of hearing the same sound again and again).
