Facebook is going to roll out an update to the Facebook Messenger app for Android and iOS. Facebook Messenger users will see a new “Groups” tab for talking in certain group discussions. This way, you will not mix one-to-one conversations with group discussions. You can also pin permanent group discussions or start a new group from the group screen.
If group chats become too active and it annoys you, you can mute the conversations for an hour, for the night, or until the notifications are turned back on.
Group conversations still show up on the main tab so the groups tabs are just shortcuts for permanent groups. If you do not want to keep a group, you can unpin it.
