Hello guys. As most of you know, chat in Facebook app doesn't work anymore and now you need to install Messenger app. At the moment is not the same for all the countries, as far as I know they are slowly migrating chat from app to Messenger only.
I made this simple app to enable chat again in main Facebook app without installing Messenger.
Root isn't needed and works between Android 2.3 and latest 5.0, on any device that supports Facebook app.
Disadvantages of Facebook+Messenger installed at same time: HUGE battery drain and RAM consumption, device may slow down etc. (especially low-end devices)
Advantages of Facebook Chat Enabler: It's only an enabler and is never executed by the system, meaning no battery drain/RAM consumption/resource eating at all. (Facebook app itself drains battery)
If you have Messenger installed, uninstall it before installing my apk. After installation you don't need to do anything else, no icon is showed in menu and chat will magically work!
Confirmed working on following Facebook versions:
- 188.8.131.52.15+any version before
- 184.108.40.206.12 (latest Play Store version)
New updates in future may break this (and to use again Chat Enabler you'll have to install last confirmed working version)
