Filed in » Facebook Tips, Web 2.0 TipsSubmitted by

If you ever get annoyed by group chat that keeps on flashing on your screen, you can disable the group chat sent from specific group, or simply turn off the chat feature by going offline for your chat status. Here’s how you can do it:

Method 1: Opt-out of Group Chat from certain groups

Once you have opt-out of group chat messages, you will no longer receive the messages from online users but if you wish to enable FB group chat again, just go through the step to go back on the same option and check it.

  • Step 1: Go to the page of the group that you don’t want to receive chat from.
  • Step 2: Click on Edit Settings which appear on the upper right corner of your screen.
  • Step 3: Un-check (un-tick) the option for “Send me group chat messages”.
  • Step 4: Click Save Settings.

Method 2: Turn Off Chat Feature

If you have joined more than just one group, and hated every group chat sent from them, we would recommend you to take this method if Chat isn’t important for you on Facebook. This method will also stop you from chatting with other people. So, no one else can chat with you on Facebook after this feature is turned off. To turn off the chat feature:

Click on Chat from the bottom right corner of your screen, click on Options, and then Go Offline.

    Simply go to your group page, click on “chat with group” which can be easily found on the right sidebar. Good luck!
