But if someone needs an Android app from the launcher, such as Chrome or similar, uses, receives new messages in the form of a small circular icon with the picture played in the corner. It’s called Chat-Head. The face waits there until you tapped on it and answer or the message deletes a gesture. Here Facebook chats are mixed with SMS, the conversations differ only in color, such as the handles and iMessage.
