When I first used the new Facebook group chat, I was annoyed that I could not turn off the the messages flashing on my screen. I could minimize it but it still annoyed me. The chat feature was designed to be a fundamental element in FB groups but there are times that you just don’t want to read chats, e.g. you’re busy and you just want to skim through published posts, links or docs.

Due to insistent public demand, FB now has an option to disable the group chat in two easy steps. I wish that it could be just a one-click step but Facebook wants to hide the option, apparently.

Anyway, just follow the screenshots to disable the group chat:

FB Group Chat Settings

Start from here…

Disable FB Group Chat

…then uncheck the box

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 back on the same option and check it.

    Hi Youssef, unfortunately it seems that it is a standard feature in FB Groups and is “on” by default. Just advice your group members that they could turn it off using the steps found in this post.

    Btw, since admins cannot disable chat completely in groups, you just have to grow the group up to 250 because the number of people to disable group chat is 250.
